Sepp serves Prince Ali with an absolute zinger
The Guardian are reporting this morning that both the BBC and Sky have written to the four FIFA presidential candidates – Sepp Blatter, Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein, Dutch FA president Michael van Praag and Luis Figo – and asked them all to take part in a live televised debate.
Sky have released the following statement:
“Sky, in collaboration with the BBC, has invited all four candidates in the FIFA presidential election to take part in a live debate.
“We believe this will present an unprecedented opportunity for the candidates to set out their plans and communicate directly with fans from around the world.
“We hope for a positive response from all four candidates.”
What’s more, FA chairman Greg Dyke has also announced that he’d be more than happy to stage the whole thing at Wembley.
Dyke told the Guardian:
“I would love to see a leaders’ debate. I would love to see the four candidates for this election get in a room together and be questioned.
“We would happily host it at Wembley.”
Cracking idea, though somebody really needs to rig up a Dr Marvin Monroe-esque family electroshock system at Wembley, pronto.
