Mark Steel: The genius that is Sepp Blatter has even managed to turn the Brazilian people off football


Here's a sneaky peak into Mark Steel's bluntly honest column about the man, the myth and indeed the legend that is Sepp Blatter.

Set to run for his fifth term in office (despite promising he wouldn't), the Fifa president even joked that he would like to see the World Cup be replaced by an interplanetary tournament in the future.

There is, many soon added, a certain alien malevolence about old Sepp.

Even if you have no interest in football, and have never watched a single game before now, this is the time to accept that all of us, including you, should hate Sepp Blatter.
