FOOTBALL- Former FIFA boss Sepp Blatter who was ousted in 2015 during a corruption scandal has said money risks running the sport.

In an interview with Swiss newspaper Schweiz am Wochenende published on Saturday, Blatter said, “People already pay a lot to get into the stadium. Prices are getting higher and higher, because clubs need more money. That is a bad sign. Football must remain accessible.”

Blatter also said that he plans to take legal action against Gianni Infantino, current FIFA boss, over damages done to his reputation by the corruption scandal.

He further said that he wants to write a book or a memoir based on his life when the scandal and court case gets over.
