- Former FIFA boss Sepp Blatter makes final appeal against ban
- Blatter seeks to challenge disgraceful six-year ban from football
- CAS “not convinced” that Blatter payment to Platini was legitimate
Sepp Blatter will mount his final challenge against his six-year FIFA ban today, following more than a year of scandal that saw him thrown out of football in disgrace.
The former FIFA boss has appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) seeking to overturn a suspension imposed by world football’s governing body.
In a May ruling CAS judges said they were “not convinced” that the $2 million payment Blatter made to former UEFA president, Platini was legitimate.
