LETTER OF CONDOLENCE FROM JOSEPH S. BLATTER TO ANGEL MARIA VILLAR LLONA, PRESIDENT OF THE SPANISH FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION (RFEF)
I am writing to you to express my profound sorrow at the news of the tragic death of Seville player and Spain international Antonio Puerta, at just 22 years of age.
The entire football community is in mourning after hearing this distressing news, which has shaken our sport to the core.
On behalf of FIFA and the entire football world, I wish to convey my sincerest condolences to you, to Seville football club and its fans and, most importantly, to Antonio Puerta’s family, friends and loved ones.
Please let them know that the international football community is thinking of them. I hope that our words of sympathy will help in some way to ease their pain at this sad time.
Yours faithfully, Joseph S. Blatter
