Ex-FIFA leader Havelange remains hospitalized

Samaritano Hospital said in a statement Thursday the 95-year-old Brazilian is in a semi-intensive unit and receiving antibiotics. He has had three procedures to drain the ankle since he was hospitalized March 18 for septic arthritis, a serious bacterial infection that affects joints.

Havelange ran soccer’s governing body from 1974-98. He resigned from the International Olympic Committee late last year, citing undisclosed health reasons. He avoided a possible suspension for allegedly taking kickbacks from former FIFA marketing partner ISL.
