Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini had their bans from soccer reduced from eight years to six by FIFA's appeal body on Wednesday, two days before the sport's ruling body tries to turn the page on years of scandals by electing a new president. Blatter and Platini were initially found guilty of wrongdoing by FIFA's independent ethics committee, which is led by a German judge, over a previously-secret 2011 financial transaction. Platini, the UEFA president, said not being cleared was an ''insulting decision, shameful and a denial of rights'' - and announced he will appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Spor

"The approval of the reforms will send a strong message that we have listened and that we are taking the action necessary to regain trust and improve our performance.” FIFA, shaken by an unprecedented graft scandal which has seen several dozen officials indicted in the United States, will choose a new president at a special Congress on Friday to replace outgoing Swiss Sepp Blatter, who has been suspended for eight years for ethics violation

Whoever is elected to succeed him as FIFA president in Zurich on Friday will inherit a very different organization and a very different job, where crisis management skills are more important than delivering grandiose speeches to fawning audiences. Had it not been for the sensational arrests of FIFA officials on suspicion of corruption in Zurich last May at the behest of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Blatter would most likely have carried on in the same fashion until 201
