Former FIFA president Sepp Blatter has been hospitalised in Switzerland, his family have confirmed.
Former FIFA President, Sepp Blatter has been admitted to a hospital in Switzerland.
The daughter of the former football chief, Corinne Blatter, made this known to Blick on Friday. She, however, noted that her father is in a ‘serious but stable’ condition.
She said: “My father is in the hospital and is getting better every day. He needs time and rest.
“On behalf of my family, I ask for privacy.”
The disgraced former football chief is expected to pull through after being rushed in on Thursday, according to reports in Switzerland.
Blatter was removed from FIFA’s top job back in 2015 after 17 years of heading up the footballing governing body.
Blatter also spent time in hospital in 2015 and 2016 due to health problems.
The eighth president of FIFA resigned in 2015 amid a corruption scandal in football’s governing body.
He was given an eight-year ban, reduced to six on appeal in 2016, over an alleged undue payment made to former UEFA president Michel Platini in 2011. Both men have maintained they committed no wrongdoing.
Last month, FIFA issued a criminal complaint over suspected “criminal mismanagement” in a museum project set up by Blatter.
Lorenz Erni, Blatter’s lawyer, described the accusations as being “baseless and vehemently repudiated”.
