The FIFA public-relations machine is in full Sepp Blatter mode.
Who else would paint the controversial Blatter in such a positive light?

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.
