Blatter, who is currently on a 90-day suspension from all football related activities, is reported w have suffered a stress related illness, but has not been hospitalized.
Klaus Stoehlker, Blatter’s adviser, confirmed to Omnisport: “The president is under medical evaluations at home and not in hospital. He will be back in a few days.”
Blatter, who has appealed his suspension, blames UEFA for trying to oust him from the position.
“I became the primary target of the attack because for three years, and specifically after the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, Uefa did not want me as the president,” he told Russian news agency TASS.
“It was a conducted attack on the Fifa president. But the other confederations, they were with me. Only Uefa tried to bring me away. They did not succeed. Even with this tsunami I was re-elected as president.
“And who has been involved in this attacking situation towards the Fifa president? Politics. The European Union. That is political interference in sport.”
