Mohamed bin Hammam says FIFA president Sepp Blatter acted like a "dictator" in giving him a life ban from soccer.

FIFA banned the suspended Asian Football Confederation president on Saturday, just months after he helped Qatar win the right to host the 2022 World Cup.

But the Qatari denies giving cash to Caribbean officials in exchange for supporting his bid to become FIFA president, saying that the allegations were made because he was a threat to Blatter's re-election.

Bin Hammam says, "this is actually the act of the dictators."

Bin Hammam tells Sky Sports News that "when they think this or that person is a prominent one to replace him, first thing they do they execute him and try to fabricate any allegation against him."
