Soccer Break Tuesday – Blatter unbeatable?


Short and sweet today. Is Sepp Blatter really “unbeatable” ahead of the June 1 election for the FIFA presidency?

It would appear so, though under his leadership the sport’s governing body has come under fire for alleged corruption.

That said, you have to admire his workrate. He is no ordinary 75-year-old.

Some transfer speculation now, and with Ligue 1 leaders Lille set to all but clinch the title on Wednesday will they be agitated by rumours that star man Eden Hazard could leave?

And how about Everton’s Leighton Baines to Manchester City for 25 million pounds? Money is no obstacle for the Manchester side as they prepare to sail into uncharted waters in the Champions League next season.
