London - FIFA President Sepp Blatter will hold talks with Fabrice Muamba later this month as the soccer player who unexpectedly recovered from an on-field cardiac arrest considers a career in soccer politics.

The midfielder was forced to retire from soccer in August, four months after collapsing at Tottenham while playing for Bolton in front of a global television audience.

Muamba finds going to soccer matches tough emotionally, but says he's now attracted to sports politics.

On the sidelines of the Leaders in Football Conference, Muamba said: "I like this kind of side of it, making decisions... I have a meeting with Sepp Blatter."

The former England under-21 international says "hopefully he can get a job for me."

The meeting is due to take place in Zurich on October 30.
