Blatter Third Favourite For FIFA Presidency After Retracting Resignation

Sepp Blatter claims that he has not resigned as President of FIFA and as a reaction to this, William Hill have reinstated him into the betting for the next FIFA election. He is a 6/1 shot to win it although finds himself quite some way behind the favourite – Prince Ali bin al-Hussein at 6/5 and Michel Platini at 9/4. 

“Everyone heard Blatter resign yet he seems to have forgotten,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “fortunately, the odds suggest he is quite some way behind the favourites.” 

Next permanent FIFA President: 6/5 Prince Ali bin al-Hussein; 9/4 Michel Platini; 6/1 Sepp Blatter; 10/1 Musa Bility; 12/1 Alfredo Hawit; 12/1 Luis Figo; 16/1 David Gill; 16/1 Michael van Praag; 20/1 BAR
