McDonald’s & Coca Cola Release Statements Calling For Sepp Blatter to Stand Down

McDonald’s & Coca Cola Release Statements Calling For Sepp Blatter to Stand Down

When two of the biggest brands in the world are in the opposite corner from you, you know your days are numbered.

Sepp Blatter is like the sore throat that just won’t go away and is still finding his way to annoy us on a daily basis as we tuck in to our Corn Flakes and see his name and face plastered across our newspapers.

Despite announcing his intentions to step down at a press conference that was made even better when comedian Lee Nelson made his way to the front and flung money at Blatter, the FIFA President is still in charge, however, this could not be the case for much longer with two of the organisation’s main sponsors calling for the man from Switzerland’s head.

Coca Cola and McDonald’s have insisted on Blatter stepping down for the good of the game and the drinks company were up first with the following statement:

For the benefit of the game, The Coca-Cola Company is calling for FIFA President Joseph Blatter to step down immediately so that a credible and sustainable reform process can begin in earnest. Every day that passes, the image and reputation of FIFA continues to tarnish. FIFA needs comprehensive and urgent reform, and that can only be accomplished through a truly independent approach

The giant fast-food chain followed suit, saying:

The events of recent weeks have continued to diminish the reputation of FIFA and public confidence in its leadership. We believe it would be in the best interest of the game for FIFA President Sepp Blatter to step down immediately so that the reform process can proceed with the credibility that is needed

Unsurprisingly, Blatter’s agent has already had his say insisting that he will not step down “respectfully disagrees” with the sponsor’s opinion.

Please, please, God, just go.
