A lawyer representing the ex-FIFA chief said: 'We refute utterly the claims that my client has not entered into the spirit of giving and receiving. He loves receiving. Arguably, when it came to bribes Mr. Blatter was always willing to share with the other boys and girls. Now, if Santa is willing to look the other way, I'm sure we can arrange for a glass of sherry and a mince pie to be left in a Swiss bank account of his choice. We can also arrange for Greenland to host the next World Cup, irrespective of its inclement weather conditions'.
