Banned former FIFA president Sepp Blatter says he is willing to talk to prosecutors about what went on during his time at world football's governing body.

He has been given a six year ban from the sport over a payment made to UEFA boss Michel Platini.

American investigators have charged a series of other football officials with corruption.

In an interview with Sky Sports News, Blatter said he will help the authorities if asked.

"I'm willing to co-operate with all the investigators in the United States or here. But they can all make an investigation here. I don't need to go to them. But I'm available," he said.
