Zurich, Nov 26 (IANS) Suspended FIFA president Sepp Blatter has declined to reveal whether the world football governing body’s ethics committee has suggested a life ban on him.

“I cannot confirm what is being done.That is confidential, I’d be a bad person if I told you that,” Blatter said on Wednesday, reports Xinhua.

Blatter criticised the ethics committee and said they were not entitled to ban him from his office as he was now involved in an corruption investigation. “I’m not a FIFA official, I’m the elected president of the Congress,” Blatter said.

“If one does not agree with the way I do my job, one has to turn to the Congress that elected me.” Both Blatter and vice president Michel Platini had been suspended for 90 days and Platini’s lawyer said on Tuesday that ethics investigators had sent a report to the judgement panel recommending he serve a life ban.
