Blatter wants TV punditry position after retirement

FIFA president Sepp Blatter has told Sky Sports News’ Special Report programme that he would like to take up a TV punditry role after stepping down from his current position.

The Guardian reports that the 76-year-old revealed in the interview that his dream when growing up was to work in a competitive media industry as a reporter or radio commentator.


Blatter said: “I would comment on the games but I would not say ‘now he passes right or left’ because everybody can see that on TV, but I would make my comments on tactics or techniques.


Blatter succeeded Joao Havelange as FIFA president in June 1998, and has won three elections since. Before his succession to the senior post in the game, he was a major FIFA official for 23 years.


The Swiss, who made some controversial comments in the past about racism being corrected with a ‘handshake,’ was re-elected as FIFA president in 2011 for a fifth term, and would like former French footballer and current UEFA president Michel Platini to succeed him when he leaves FIFA at the age of 79.


He continued by saying: “This could be a good possibility…I am not so sure that he would be willing to go into the position as FIFA president - he has not declared officially.
