Sepp Blatter Believes He Will Be Replaced Soon

sepp_blatter_2013 [1]Sepp Blatter has admitted that he could be replaced as FIFA president “in the near future.”

The 77-year-old made the comments before a speech to mark the opening of a CONCACAF sport summit being held in the Caribbean.

The soundbite was made when Blatter was introduced incorrectly to an audience of regional political leaders and confederation delegates as “FIFA’s vice-president.”

Stepping to the lectern, Blatter informed the local media officer of his mistake by saying, “I think you’re a prophet.”

“[There may be] a new FIFA president in the near future,” Blatter said, “and this president could be Jeffrey Webb.”

Webb is the Cayman Islands native who was elected president of CONCACAF in May 2012 following the bitter departures of former president Jack Warner and general secretary Chuck Blazer.
