Under fire again ... FIFA President Sepp Blatter

REAL Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has accused FIFA President Sepp Blatter of being “unable to keep his mouth shut".

The Italian was responding to comments from Blatter that Bayern Munich and Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer should receive the Ballon d’Or award at the expense of Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo.

“It has surprised me what the FIFA President has said and it appears he is unable to keep his mouth shut,” Ancelotti told reporters.

“The Ballon d’Or is something that gets talked about months before yet this year there are not that many things to think about.

“Last year Cristiano had other players like Lionel Messi and Franck Ribery contesting it but this year, with the titles he has won and the goals he has scored, there’s no doubt he is going to win it.

“Therefore, Blatter’s words don’t make any sense.”

Ancelotti himself has been nominated for the Best Coach award and joked he would ‘no longer be in contention’ for it after his words about Blatter, although he is honoured to be have been selected.

“I am proud to be in this category and would like to win it, although I have already received the biggest prize when we claimed the Champions League.

“If I win another one I’ll have to expand my trophy cabinet,” he commented.
