Sepp Blatter resigned from FIFA. Why now and what's next?
视频新闻:FIFA主席布拉特宣布辞职

在5月30日的国际足联大选中,布拉特击败阿里王子连任主席,任期至2019年。但仅仅4天后,布拉特就突然宣布辞职。

FIFA召开紧急发布会,布拉特宣布辞去国际足联主席一职。布拉特称自己辞职的理由是没有得到人们的支持,他希望国际足联尽快选出一个新的主席。

事件背景
5月27日,瑞士执法机构突袭苏黎世巴尔拉克酒店,抓捕了数名国际足联高官,他们将被美国司法部指控诈骗、洗钱、欺诈、逃税等多项罪名。一时间,国际足联陷入前所未有的危机中,欧足联大多数官员都认为布拉特该为管理不善承担责任,但布拉特还是决定参加主席大选,谋求连任。

在5月30日的国际足联大选中,布拉特击败阿里王子连任主席,任期至2019年。但仅仅4天后,布拉特就突然宣布辞职。本次FIFA发布会是临时宣布召开的,原定于北京时间6月3日0点召开的会议一直被拖延至45分钟后,据传最后时刻,布拉特的亲信仍然在劝说他。

在布拉特宣布辞职后,BBC、ESPN等多家媒体称,布拉特正式接受FBI调查。

Sepp Blatter shocked the world on Tuesday, abruptly resigning as FIFA president after winning re-election on Friday. During his victory speech, Blatter vowed to clean up FIFA and take every step necessary to reform the organization. Four days later, he's decided that FIFA can't change while he's at the helm and will step down to allow world soccer's governing body to undergo a complete restructuring.

 Here, we'll try to answer the most important questions about exactly what the heck is happening.

Why is Sepp Blatter resigning right after winning re-election?


There are a lot of possibilities here. Clearly, he got some information in the last four days that he didn't have on Friday -- like confirmation that the FBI is after him. The reasons he might have went down, in order of plausibility:

1. Over the last couple of days, news has emerged that FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke was involved in the transfer of a $10 million payment from South Africa to the Caribbean Football Union, which Valcke did not have the power to authorize. Blatter might know that there's a link from that transaction to him somewhere, waiting to be uncovered.

2. Maybe one of the guys that the FBI has indicted has decided to talk.
Of those currently facing extradition to the United States, the one likely to know the most about any criminal activity Blatter has had a part in is Jack Warner, the former CONCACAF president and FIFA executive committee member who was forced out of the organization in 2011. It's possible that Warner or someone else the U.S. Department of Justice has gotten ahold of has decided to start talking about Blatter.

3. Blatter was dumb enough to try to buy votes in the most recent presidential election and already got busted for it. This seems pretty unlikely.

4. If you're not feeling cynical, maybe Blatter's had an epiphany. He thought he was the man to reform FIFA four days ago, but over the weekend, he realized that he wouldn't be able to implement his vision. Out of his love for the game, he decided to step down.

It's worth noting that the Swiss attorney general says that Blatter is not part of their investigation.

Who takes over?

This is a very interesting and difficult to answer question. Prince Ali bin Hussein garnered enough support on Friday to force a second round of voting (and will run again), so he's the logical choice, but certainly not the only one. Previous presidential candidates bowed out of the race so that all the anti-Blatter support would be concentrated with one candidate, but some new faces might aspire to be president now that Blatter is gone.

Former player Luis Figo, former FIFA executive Jerome Champagne, Dutch FA president Michael van Praag, and UEFA president Michel Platini will be presented as candidates in the coming days. Some of them will run, while some of them will declare that they have no interest in being president. A few other names who have not put their hat into the ring previously will emerge, as well.

With Blatter gone, it's possible that every candidate could issue a public platform and decide to engage in a debate on international television. It might be a very positive thing for world soccer.

When will the special election take place?

There will be a special FIFA congress held sometime this winter, at a date to be determined. Chairman of FIFA's audit and compliance committee, Domenico Scala, says the election is likely to take place sometime between December 2015 and March 2016. Previously, the next FIFA congress was scheduled to be held in May of 2016, but Blatter said that was too long to wait for a new president.(source:SB Nation)
