Blatter looks to reinstate Egypt FA

FIFA president Sepp Blatter insists the leaders of the Egypt FA must be reinstated, calling their dismissal "direct interference" by the government.

• Death toll up to 74 after football riot
• Egyptian FA dissolved by PM
• Egyptian army blamed for tragedy
• FIFA requests report
• Al-Ahly coach returns to Portugal

Blatter's comments came while speaking at a special congress of South American football officials in Asuncion, Paraguay. The remarks are a direct response to the Egyptian goverment dissolving the FA in the wake of Wednesday's tragedy in Port Said which claimed more than 70 lives.

The axing of federation president Samir Zaher and his leadership, according to Blatter, constituted "a direct interference in the organisation of football".

"We will look to have the Egyptian federation reinstated and, naturally, see that this situation does not repeat itself," Blatter said, describing the situation in Egypt is "very delicate."
