European giants fed-up with Blatter antics

Europe's biggest clubs are fed-up with the antics of FIFA president Sepp Blatter.

The Sunday Mirror says copies of letters have been sent to Blatter by the powerful European Club ­Association.

The group that ­represents the 40 ­biggest clubs in Europe including Barcelona, Manchester United, ­Bayern Munich, Chelsea and ­Arsenal. The ECA ­chairman is Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

In a letter he sent to Blatter last month he made clear "our clubs are not being consulted about important matters."

He warns: "As in the past FIFA acts explicitly contrary to what the European Commission deems to be the pre-requisite for sport. It is our intention to consult the Commission in this respect."
