That’s Sepp Blatter on the left, the President of FIFA. On the right is Lydia Nsekera of Burundi, the first woman elected to the top board of FIFA.
How did Sepp choose to introduce her at the initial news conference after she had been elected?
“Say something ladies, you are always speaking at home, now you can speak here.”
Oh Sepp, you do go on. They should take FIFA on the road, since it’s pretty much the best ongoing show available. Corruption, graft, awarding major tournaments to countries who have horrendous human rights records, and now we can add overt sexism to the list!
