The Reading / Listening - Level 0

Sepp Blatter is president of FIFA again. He beat his rival in a vote. He has another four years as FIFA's boss. He said: "I am the president now. The president of everybody." On Wednesday, there was another scandal. Police arrested seven top FIFA officials. Britain's leader said Blatter should quit and "the sooner the better".



Mr Blatter said he would change FIFA. He will put it in a "strong position". England's Football Association said: "He's had 16 years to reform it and he hasn't." FIFA's sponsors are asking big questions. One is why FIFA is doing so little about workers in Qatar. More than 1,200 workers have died to make the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
