New Song: Shake His Hand (from Sepp Blatter, The Musical)

It was only a matter of time.

Following Sepp Blatter’s comments on Wednesday, primarily that anyone racially abused on the football pitch should “say ‘this is a game’ and shake hands,” a new song has been released making fun of the 75-year-old FIFA president.

Congratulations to James Gasson (jdsfootballsongs’s on YouTube) for an excellent spoof, basically urging all problems to simply be solved by shaking hands.

Among the best lyrics are: “Shake his hand,  Someone shagged my wife, Shake his hand, Someone ruined my life, Shake his hand.”

Sepp Blatter’s Shake His Hand spoof song can be heard here.
