ZURICH---Sepp Blatter hosted Michel Platini and
football s other continental presidents yesterday, in
their first formal meeting since the Fifa president
announced he would leave office amid a corruption
The closed-door meeting at Fifa headquarters was
to help prepare for an executive committee session
today, called at short notice to set a date for the pres-
idential election to replace Blatter.
Platini, the UEFA president, is currently favoured
to win a ballot that requires a four-month campaign
MOSCOW---Reigning champion Zenit St Peters-
burg started the new Russian Premier League season
with a win, beating Dynamo Moscow 2-1 at home
during an opening weekend when former Arsenal
player Emmanuel Frimpong said he was the victim
of racist abuse.
Zenit went behind to an Alexander Kokorin goal
on 28 minutes yesterday, but mounted a comeback
after Dynamo defender Tomas Hubocan s 42nd-
minute red card for fouling Artyom Dzyuba in the
box and denying a clear goalscoring opportunity.
Hulk converted the resulting penalty to send Zenit
into halftime on level terms. The Brazilian went on
to set up Oleg Shatov for the winning goal on 68
Zenit s main title rival CSKA Moscow also started
the season victoriously, beating Rubin Kazan 1-0 on
Saturday thanks to a late goal from Ahmed Musa at
the end of a well-played passing move.
However, there was also controversy at the weekend
with Frimpong being sent off while playing for FC
Ufa in a 2-2 draw with Spartak Moscow on Friday.
Frimpong was shown the red card for displaying
an offensive gesture to the Spartak fans and afterward
said he had been reacting to racist abuse. Afterward,
he said on Twitter that he had been "racially abused
for the game that I love."
He added: "I m going to serve a sentence for being
abused...and yet we (are) going to hold a World Cup
in this country."
It is the latest in a string of similar incidents involv-
ing black players being punished for their reactions
to racism in the 2018 World Cup host nation. Frim-
pong faces a ban of between two and four games.
Elsewhere, there was a 1-1 draw between FC Rostov
and Terek Grozny on Saturday.
Zenit starts Russian
league season in style
Blatter, Platini meet at
session of Fifa leaders
by Fifa election rules.
The former France great, smiling and appearing
relaxed, declined to discuss the content of yesterday s
meeting on returning to Fifa s favourite Baur au Lac
When the presidents group last met on May 28,
one day after senior Fifa officials were arrested at the
same luxury downtown hotel, Platini urged his men-
tor-turned-adversary to resign.
Blatter refused and was re-elected the next day for
a fifth four-year term.
Within days on June 2 he promised to leave office
by March next year, under pressure from American
and Swiss federal investigations of corruption impli-
The presidents group includes: Issa Hayatou of
Africa, Asia s Sheikh Salman Bin Ebrahim Al Khalifa,
Concacaf interim leader Alfredo Hawit, Juan Angel
Napout of CONMEBOL and Oceania s David Chung.
Like Platini, Hayatou also did not address details
of questions about the latest Blatter-chaired meetings,
at a time when senior UEFA officials have suggested
the Fifa leader should formally resign and leave now.
Asked by The Associated Press if he could be installed
as interim Fifa leader on Monday, senior vice president
Hayatou said in French: "I don t know."
Hawit of Honduras was attending his first confed-
eration leaders meeting since being appointed in May
by the regional body for North and Central America
and the Caribbean to replace Jeffrey Webb.
Webb, then a Fifa vice president, was one of the
seven men arrested in Zurich and among 14 indicted
by the US Department of Justice for an alleged bribery
On Saturday, Webb appeared in a federal court in
Brooklyn after being the first detainee to be extradited
to the US.
