Fifa has announced it will open a World Football Museum just two days after the presidential election to find Sepp Blatter’s replacement. The scandal-hit organisation plans to open the museum in Zurich on 28 February, despite significant controversy surrounding world football’s governing body.In December 2015, former president Sepp Blatter wasbanned from all football activity for eight years in relation to a payment made to former Uefa president Michel Platini. But the managing director of the museum thinks that will not affect the launch of the $140m (£97m) project.
