Blatter wages final FIFA ban appeal.

Former FIFA president Sepp Blatter, has begun his final appeal against his six-year ban from football, in a long-shot quest for redemption after his career ended in scandal.

Blatter, entered the world’s top sports court for a one-day hearing seeking to overturn a suspension imposed by FIFA over ethics violations.

Blatter, told journalists outside the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Lausanne, Switzerland that he would accept the verdict, hoping that it would be positive.

The case that triggered Blatter’s downfall first emerged in September of last year, when Swiss prosecutors said they were investigating Blatter over a suspect two million Swiss franc payment he authorised in twenty-eleven to his one-time heir apparent, Michel Platini.

Blatter is also the target of a criminal investigation by Swiss prosecutors over the Platini payment and alleged mismanagement during his seventeen year tenure as FIFA president.
