Sion fans heckle Sepp Blatter mercilessly in home town of Visp

On Friday, Sepp Blatter made a speech in Visp but it turns out the FIFA president is just as unpopular in his home town as he is in England. (For those who may not be aware, Visp is where Blatter was born in 1936.)

Footage has now emerged of Blatter making his speech in a large tent but the supporters outside, of Swiss club Sion, do not let him string a sentence together by singing and chanting.

Blatter, in true style, came out fighting after the incident, saying: “What they have done here is unworthy. This is just not done. It’s not fair play and smacks of poor education.”

Incredibly, he also said that the disrespect shown to the the FIFA president in a minor incident, will have no bearing on Sion’s case to be reinstated in the Europa League or even of the Swiss national team competing internationally.

The 75-year-old added: “Whatever happens – the exclusion of the Swiss national team is not in question.”
