New Delhi: FIFA president Sepp Blatter on Friday, said "sleeping giant" India is slowly waking up and promised that he won't leave football's world body until the game is established in the country.
On his second visit here, Blatter said he was happy that India, which he termed as a sleeping giant in 2007, is slowly waking up.
"To wake up a sleeping giant you need several alarm clocks. We have set up several alarm clocks to monitor them. I am in my 30th year in FIFA and 13th year as the president. My tenure ends in 2015 but I won't leave FIFA until I see the sport established in the sub-continent of India," said Blatter.
