David Cameron has today urged Sepp Blatter to quit as FIFA President as the calls to re-open the 2018 and 2022 World Cup bidding processes got louder.
The Prime Minister?s official spokesman said Cameron backed the comments of the Government?s Culture Secretary when he described FIFA as a ?deeply flawed and corrupt organisation?.
The Government also revealed that it will meet with FA chairman Greg Dyke to discuss the ?nuclear option? of pulling out of FIFA entirely in light of the corruption allegations.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has also waded into the row, claiming the US-led investigation into FIFA is part of a plot to scupper his country?s hosting of the 2018 World Cup.
The row comes just hours before Blatter stands for the FIFA president election for the fifth time.
In the House of Commons this morning, Culture Secretary John Whittingdale called on the tarnished FIFA President to go.
