    Nah, it's hogwash. He clearly wanted to have a huge say in his successor. If the recent pressure made Blatter want to resign, why bother staying in it to win it in the first place? Step aside and let the other candidate be elected. No, Blatter CLEARLY is manipulating events here.

    Good points made by all. Lin just glad that he is leaving. His arrogance got the best of him. He should have resigned long ago and moving fwd Fifa needs to limit terms.

    And in other news, Vladimir Putin says that Blatter deserves the Nobel Prize. You can't make this stuff up.

    I guess that's his thank you for giving his country the World Cup.
