Disgraced ex-FIFA president Sepp Blatter says he plans to attend the 2018 World Cup finals as a guest of Russian President Vladimir Putin, which would currently contravene his six-year ban.Both Blatter and Platini were hit with eight-year bans by a FIFA ethics court in December, which were then reduced to six years by the appeals panel.But Blatter hopes to have his ban from all football activities overturned by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) when his appeal is heard in the coming months. So until he hears otherwise, Blatter assumes he will be in Russia when the next World Cup starts on June 14, 2018 .
