Blatter Won't Step Down As FIFA President

Embattled FIFA president Sepp Blatter has stated that he will not step down from his position.
 
The Swiss attorney general opened investigations against Blatter last Friday with a focus on criminal mismanagement and misappropriation.
 
However, Blatter remains unfazed by recent developments, insisting that he has "done nothing illegal or improper".
 
A statement from Blatter's lawyer stated: "President Blatter spoke to FIFA staff today and informed the staff that he was cooperating with the authorities, reiterated that he had done nothing illegal or improper and stated that he would remain as president of FIFA.
 
"On the [UEFA President Michel] Platini matter, President Blatter on Friday shared with the Swiss authorities the fact that Mr. Platini had a valuable employment relationship with FIFA serving as an adviser to the president beginning in 1998. He explained to the prosecutors that the payments were valid compensation and nothing more and were properly accounted for within FIFA including the withholding of Social Security contributions.
 
"Because of the continuing investigation President Blatter will answer no further questions at this time."
