FIFA president and football’s adoptive father, Sepp Blatter, has announced that he would like to destroy the Premiership. In his latest bizarre outburst, Blatter also takes a swipe at Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger.
He told French sports newspaper AttrapÃ© Hors Jeu: “The Premiership is the cancer on modern football. Too much money, too much ego, too little respect for the game and people like me who try to make it better. After Chelsea lose, Mourinho talks about the referee. After Arsenal lose, Wenger talks about the other team playing bad football. It is getting to the point where I would rather destroy the Premiership completely then have them be an example to other leagues of how to play. You can say that I am joking, but I know people. Bad people.â€
