Sportsman-turned-actor Vinnie Jones has blasted world soccer boss Sepp Blatter for his controversial comments about racism in the game, insisting: "He's in the wrong job."
Welshman Jones enjoyed a successful soccer career in the U.K. before taking up a career in the movies, and he's currently spearheading a campaign to promote the sport among children.
He's now waded into the scandal engulfing Fifa president Blatter, who suggested earlier this month (Nov11) that incidences of racism on the field should be dealt with by the players shaking hands.
Jones tells Sky News, "You can't just shake someone's hand. It's a lot deeper than that, and if he thinks that then he is in the wrong job, for a start."
