Blatter launches defence amid fresh claims

Al Jazeera's Lee Wellings sees FIFA president sail into the eye of a storm in Zurich.


    There have been a few unwanted headaches for the FIFA President Sepp Blatter on Tuesday.

    He is in the middle of campaigning for re-election as head of football's governing body, and is in Zurich, Switzerland, to launch a task force of the biggest names in the game, aimed at improving the image of the sport.

    But that too did not go according to plan.
