Vil­lain of the sea­son

The Daily Telegraph - Total Football - - EUROPEAN FOOTBALL -

Stand­ing head and shoul­ders above ev­ery other can­di­date, Sepp Blat­ter set new stan­dards for vil­lain­ous es­capades. What sets him apart is the fact his cor­rupt ways spanned nearly two decades as Fifa pres­i­dent. We can only hope that his suc­ces­sor, Gianni In­fantino, does a bit bet­ter. Look­ing back now, it is up­set­ting to think of the harm Blat­ter in­flicted on foot­ball’s good name. Thank good­ness he has gone.
