Blatter: Best Football Players A Better Investment For Public Than Best Art:

One of Football's Picasso's?:

"Ten years ago there was painting from Picasso's Blue Period was sold by Sothebys in London at that time for over £100m.

"And what happened to this painting by Picasso? They hid it somewhere so no-one could take it away. Nobody can see it.

"But a football player, you can see him once or twice a week, he is there, he is a star, he is being billed as a star. It is not the money he is getting, it's the money between the clubs.

"Okay, you might say it is too much, but you have to put it in context of what football in our society is worth and what other things in our society are worth." (Source)
