Feb. 23, 2016
ZURICH (AP) — Sepp Blatter's long-awaited book about his life at FIFA is expected to be published within days.
Swiss publisher Werd & Weber says on its website that "Sepp Blatter: Mission Football" will cost 49 Swiss francs (US$49) and will be available in February.
Blatter previously said it would be a photograph-led book with anecdotes about his 40 years at FIFA, including as president since 1998.
The website says: "Despite the success, Blatter repeatedly had to put up with harsh reviews and prejudices."
"In this richly illustrated book, Sepp Blatter tells how he learned to deal with the hostility," the preview says.
The 300-page, hardcover book was written by his spokesman, Thomas Renggli.
On Tuesday, Blatter should receive the verdict of his appeal to FIFA against an eight-year ban for conflicts of interest.
