FIFA president,Sepp Blatter and Premier League chief executive,Richard Scudamore are once again at logger heads with the previous calling those in charge of the latter to be in there just for the money.

Blatter had this to say to Bloomberg after their meeting to solve the differences :

"He is working to make a lot of money and I'm working to have football as a social, cultural event around the world, being a school of life, bringing hope, bringing emotions,"

In response,Scudamore has blasted Blatter's 6+5 rule which makes only 5 foreign based players to be added to the starting lineup of a club side thus promoting homegrown talent.

He goes on to take the example of the England national team which has all players playing in England except David Beckham.

This really isn't the end of this issue and more comments wouldn't be shocking.However I don't understand why Blatter has to butt in to Premiership's business!
