Greg Dyke 'annoyed' by Sepp Blatter racism allegations

FA chairman Greg Dyke said he was "annoyed" by claims made by Fifa President Sepp Blatter that the British media was racist following allegations of corruption.

He said: "I was deeply upset at the allegations yesterday from Mr Blatter about the British media was somehow racist. I got annoyed by it.

"It's nothing to do with racism at all, so I just pointed that out."

Speaking to ITV News Brazil Correspondent Nick Ravenscroft, Mr Dyke added: "I think a lot of Uefa members feel that Fifa has a bad reputation, and as a result something needs to be done about that. It's hard to do that while Mr Blatter is there."
