FIFA President Sepp Blatter Wants To Try His Hand As TV Pundit After Retiring

Despite his "sometimes garbled grammar and controversial opinions," FIFA President SEPP BLATTER said that when he finally steps down from his post in '15 "he would like to become a match analyst on TV and radio," according to Owen Gibson of the London GUARDIAN. Given his "longstanding aversion to technology, it is also unclear how Blatter would fare with Sky's studio gadgetry." However, the 76-year-old said he planned to "live a dream he had when he was a young boy" and work in the media as a "radio commentator or reporter." When it was suggested he could become a Sky Sports pundit, he replied: "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" (GUARDIAN, 1/14).
