Embattled FIFA President Sepp Blatter deserves a Nobel Prize for his work leading world soccer’s governing body, according to Russian leader Vladimir Putin.
Russia’s President made the comments in an interview with Swiss broadcaster RTS that was released Monday, two days after he and Blatter had gathered on stage in St. Petersburg for the preliminary draw for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
“I believe that people like Mr. Blatter, the heads of major international sports federations, deserve special attention and gratitude from public organizations,” Putin said. “If anyone should be awarded Nobel Prizes, it is these people.”
I read this article and I laughed because at first glance I thought maybe I was on The Onion instead of CNN. Vladimir Putin, as we all know, is not a good judge of character. In fact he’s not a good man at all. But after reading this I think he is either the biggest troll of all time or going insane because even a stupid sane man would never say something like this. I mean look at the below timeline:
This is not even to mention the thousands of migrant workers in unmarked graves in Qatar and the economic effects World Cups have on host countries because of FIFA’s insane demands. This is easily the most absurd thing I have ever heard. I can’t wait till he’s gone. We’re almost there.
