Sports Minister angered by Blatter comments
- From the section Football
Sport Minister Hugh Robertson says Sepp Blatter's comments on racism in football are "completely unacceptable" and he "can only hope" the Fifa president resigns from his post.
Blatter said he does not believe football has a problem with racism on the field despite the Football Association investigating two cases of alleged racial abuse in England.
Robertson says Blatter's comments are "part of a pattern" and he has had "issues with Fifa for a long time", including during England's failed bid to host the 2018 World Cup last year.
