FIFA's in-House Magazine Has Images of a Baby-Faced and Swiss-Army Sepp Blatter

Sean SwabyUK Staff WriterAugust 23, 2014

The FIFA public-relations machine is in full Sepp Blatter mode. 

Who else would paint the controversial Blatter in such a positive light? 

In a series of images in FIFA's in-house magazine picked up by Rob Harris of the Associated Press, Blatter is shown both as a baby in his mother's arms and as a member of the Swiss army. 

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.
