Embattled FIFA President who is currently on suspension, is facing more battles – this time around, it’s on his health.
Suspended FIFA president, Sepp Blatter has been hospitalised after being placed under medical observation for stress, but expected to leave the facility early next week.
AFP quotes Blatter’s spokesman Klaus Stoehlker as saying: “He is now, at this moment, in hospital. He is preparing to leave on Monday and will be back on the job on Tuesday.”
Stoehlker added that 79-year-old Blatter had “regained his good humour” and has vowed to persist with “his fight against the (FIFA) ethics committee” which suspended him for 90 days over corruption allegations.
According to AFP, Blatter suffered a medical incident last weekend and had been placed under medical observation from his home.
It will be recalled that Blatter has been at the centre of the worst scandal to ever hit world football. Swiss prosecutors opened a criminal case against him in September, an announcement that led to his suspension from FIFA.
