Blatter and his counterpart Valcke denied any wrongdoing. In a statement released by his spokesperson, Blatter said:
“This is a painful and incomprehensible blow on the neck,”
“The ethics committee in its current form has nothing to do with an independent body – it is much more the extended arm of the Fifa president and not much more than a ‘parallel justice,”

Blatter served as FIFA president from 1988 until 2015 when series of Fifa officials were arrested in a United State-led corruption probe. He was banned for eight years by Fifa’s ethics committee in December 2015 but that was later they reduced that ban to six years.
