Blatter tells Brazilian fans to respect their president

Jun 16 2013, 1:41am CDT | by

Brasilia, June 16 (IANS) FIFA president Sepp Blatter urged fans to show more respect after Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff was roundly booed before the opening Confederations Cup match between Brazil and Japan.

Brasilia, June 16 — FIFA president Sepp Blatter urged fans to show more respect after Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff was roundly booed before the opening Confederations Cup match between Brazil and Japan.

The crowd of almost 70,000 fans at Mane Garrincha Stadium showed their disapproval Saturday when Rousseff's name was read out by Blatter during a speech to officially inaugurate the tournament, reports Xinhua.

"Brazilian football fans, where is the respect and fair play, please?" Blatter had said.

Rousseff's popularity has tumbled in recent weeks amid rising inflation and concerns that billions of dollars of public money is being spent on World Cup and Olympic projects instead of essential public services.

Anger escalated this week amid mass protests in the cities of Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro against higher public transport fares.

VIDEO: ‘If I Told The Truth, I’d Be Sent To Prison’ – Cristiano Ronaldo On Messi’s Golden Ball

Aug 29 2014 1:40pm CDT | Source: balls

Balls.ie Cristiano Ronaldo hinted that he did not think much of the decision to award Lionel Messi the Golden Ball in an interview with Portugese TV. In this he is hardly unique. However, the way he half-evaded the question is rather revealing. His impatience with FIFA’s apparent love of Messi has been apparent since he reacted badly to Sepp Blatter’s fairly harmless comments at the Oxford Union. ...
