The FIFA public-relations machine is in full Sepp Blatter mode.
Who else would paint the controversial Blatter in such a positive light?
Blatter is up for re-election in 2015 as the FIFA top dog, going for his fifth four-year term.
There were also some unintentionally less-than-flattering Blatter comments in the magazine.
The images are certainly more flattering than other Blatter-related media that frequently makes the rounds.
