Blatter Loses Appeal Against 6-year Ban From Football

The Court of Arbitration for Sport on Monday upheld a six year ban against former FIFA president Sepp Blatter, the disgraced power broker’s spokesman told AFP.

Blatter, who was ousted over a suspicious payment to ex-UEFA leader Michel Platini, called the verdict “incomprehensible” in a statement released even before the tribunal had officially given its decision.
