Libreville: Football has become a victim of its own popularity as shown by the swathe of match-fixing scandals in the past year, FIFA President Sepp Blatter said on Friday.
Speaking after attending the Confederation of African Football's general assembly, the head of world football suggested that the problem was becoming an increasingly widespread worry for FIFA.
"(Match-fixing) is not a regional phenomenon. This has to be stopped," Blatter said. "We will talk about it at our FIFA Congress (in May)."
