Brazilian Football Legend Romario Criticizes FIFA, Blatter Again

Former Brazilian footballer Romario has heavily criticized FIFA, calling President Sepp Blatter "a corrupt thief" and Secretary General Jerome Valcke ''a blackmailer,'' according to Eduardo Fernandez-Abascal of the INT'L BUSINESS TIMES. Now a Brazilian congressman, Romario "is well-known for his criticism of FIFA," even claiming that the 2018 World Cup "was stolen from England and sold to Russia." His latest attack on FIFA came following Valcke's comments about Romario, saying he is ''the worst person in the world,'' and calling the former Barcelona striker "anti-FIFA, anti-Jerome Valcke, anti-everything." Romario was quoted by Spanish newspaper AS as saying, ''We can't expect anything from FIFA, where we have a blackmailer called Valcke and a corrupt thief and son of a bitch called Blatter" (IBT, 3/13).
