Zurich: Sepp Blatter has insisted he was not the high-ranking FIFA official who authorised a 10 million US dollar payment to the disgraced Jack Warner saying: “Definitely that’s not me.”

Blatter also revealed he will make a personal visit to sponsors who have expressed concern about the corruption storm that has surrounded the world governing body this week.

He said: “We have had contact with the sponsors last week... We have exchanged letters and we start to bring back the reputation of FIFA. I’m sure we will bring them back all in the right situation and have planned a personal visit to the organisation of these sponsors.”
