'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Blatters words offer encouragement to Zaki?

Sepp Blatter the president of FIFA has spoken out regarding the ongoing transfer speculation regarding the transfer of Ronaldo to Real Madrid.

Whereas I couldn`t care less where Ronaldo ends up next season , Mr Blatter`s beliefs if enacted could provide Amr Zaki with a way out of Zamelek to join Wigan.

Mr Blatter in an exclusive interview with Sky Sports is quoted as saying that," that a want-away player should be allowed to leave his club if he so desires."

At present this is what Amr is doing having applied to Mr Blatter`s own organisation FIFA to have his contract cancelled due to alleged non payment on his contract.

Zamelek are unwilling to release Amr from his contract and FIFA appears to be the only way that he can secure his dream move to the Premier League to line up at the JJB next season.

It will be interesting to see FIFA`s stance on the matter and whether it will match that of Mr Blatter

It is a bit different with regards to Ronaldo at United and Zaki at Zamalek. personally I think Blatter is talking through his bottom once again comparing players to slaves! This man has no sense and it is quite offensive modern day players life a life of luxury. Contracts are there to protect both clubs and players, thats the way its got to be...We need to get rid of Blatter and that other idiot Platini as soon as possible

I know what you mean, but the trouble is, you can't just look at this from a Premier League perspective. On the whole I think Blatter talks quite a lot of sense, and he definitely looks at the whole picture, not just the the views of the big teams. There are still players (even in the lower leagues of this country) who get a raw deal and/or are manipulated by the clubs. While (as in all aspects of life) the big names will work the rules round to their benefit, you can't change the rules without considering the effect it will have on the weakest members of the community.

This is nothing to do with Zaki, and Blatter's blitherings will cut no ice in Egypt anyway. Blatter and Platini are green with envy at the PL, and anything they can do to mess it up, they will.

'There are still players (even in the lower leagues of this country) who get a raw deal and/or are manipulated by the clubs.' It works both ways, lytham, and Ronaldo is trying to pull a fast one here. He signed a long contract, he didn't have to.

If there was ever a case has to do with abusing and holding a player then its Zaki. Maybe putting it as a slave a little much. However, they do own and control him and seem bent on destroying his potential and future. Dose anyone know what kind of precedence exist with relation to FIFA annulling player’s contract. What is the likelihood in this case? How long will it take to come back with a ruling? It took the Egyptian FA just a few weeks I guess FIFA the same… Thanks
