As Sepp Blatter continues to stand trial in the very ethics court he created, one of his long-time allies has once again reared his head to blow smoke up the deposed FIFA president’s bung-hole.

Speaking in defence of his friend during a press conference in Moscow today, Vladimir Putin stated for the record that he believes Blatter should receive a Nobel Peace Prize, presumably for his tireless work in the ‘flagrant self-interest’ sector.

Repeating a line he first trotted out in July, Putin was keen to stress that the world should be grateful for all Saint Sepp has done for us.

Blatter is a very respected person. He has done a lot to develop world football.

We should give him the Nobel peace prize.

First being named “Swiss Person of the Year” by a prominent newspaper and now receiving a Nobel Prize endorsement from perhaps the only person left in Europe who considers Blatter to be perfectly morally upstanding and just.

This has been quite a day for Ol’ Sepp.

    Putin didn’t say anything about Blatter being “perfectly morally upstanding and just”, he just says he deserves the Nobel Peace Prize. That has nothing to do with morality, even a terrorist such as Mandela got it. And say what you want, Blatter did a fairly good job promoting football in Africa and Asia, even though we in Europe would probably be better off if he didn’t (vide: 2002 and 2010 WCs).
