MOSCOW (Reuters) - Banned former FIFA president Sepp Blatter said he felt the soccer World Cup underway in Moscow was a little bit like “my World Cup” because he had been so well received on his visit to Moscow.
Blatter is currently serving a six-year ban for unethical conduct. In an interview with Russia’s RT broadcaster, he said he was in Russia as a guest, unlike previous World Cups where he was actively involved. He said he was still FIFA president, but had been suspended.
