I want to work in radio – Sepp Blatter

Sepp Blatter has revealed that he plans to move into radio broadcasting when he stands down as Fifa president.

The Swiss secured another term at the helm last month only to then dramatically announce his decision to stand down as soon as possible, explaining that he no longer felt he had the full support of the football world because of the fallout from a corruption scandal that rocked the game’s governing body two days before his re-election.

It was confirmed on Monday that Blatter’s successor will be determined at a presidential vote on February 26, prompting the 79-year-old to start giving serious thought to his future.

Blatter, who has previously worked in public relations, has now admitted that he would like to work in radio.

“I think it’s the most popular form of communication,” he told reporters.

Blatter has not been accused of any wrongdoing by those investigating allegations of corruption at Fifa dating back to 1991 but he found himself at the centre of another furore on Monday when a British comedian interrupted a press conference to throw money at him.
