ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Days before the arrests of top FIFA officials in Zurich, the daughter of FIFA president Sepp Blatter said in an interview that her father was "not corrupt" and instead "would give you his last shirt." Speaking to Swiss news agency Keystone in Blatter's hometown of Visp in the canton of Valais, Corinne Blatter described her father as "the most generous human being you can imagine. If you lack something and you ask him 'help me,' he will help. So he is not corrupt, he is not someone who opens his hands. He is someone who gives." "My father is not corrupt. I can say that with one hundred percent certainty," Corinne Blatter added, speaking at Visp's local "Napoleon" restaurant. Later on Friday (May 29), Sepp Blatter hopes to be re-elected FIFA president for a fifth term.
