[ZURICH] Banned Fifa leader Sepp Blatter will appeal against his eight-year ban by the world soccer body's ethics committee imposed on Monday, he told reporters.

"I will fight for me and I will fight for Fifa," Blatter said, adding he would take his objections to Fifa's appeals body, go before the Lausanne-based sports arbitration panel, or take legal action under Swiss law if needed.
