FIFA: Sepp Blatter 'Provisionally Suspended' for 90 Days

The bad news just keeps coming for Sepp Blatter after FIFA provisionally suspended the president of football's world governing body.

Already facing an investigation by Swiss authorities over allegations that he signed an "unfavourable" contract and made a "disloyal payment" to UEFA President Michel Platini, Blatter faces a 90-day suspension, CNN reports.

However, in a statement, Blatter's lawyers said that he had "not been notified of any action taken by the FIFA Ethics Committee." Any suspension would have to be rubber stamped by the adjudicatory arm of the Ethics Committee, which would rule on the request of the investigatory chamber.
