FFA chairman has brain surgery after A-League Final tumble

FFA Chairman Frank Lowy has been forced to undergo surgery to remove a blood clot in his brain after his dramatic fall during the A-League Grand Final presentation in May.

Lowy, who is also the Chairman of shopping centre giant Westfield Corporation, suffered a subdural haematoma but is now out of hospital.

The injury was most likely a complication from the highly-publicised fall, the Westfield statement said, adding that the chairman was expected to make a full recovery.


Lowy stumbled as he went to present Melbourne Victory coach Kevin Muscat with the championship trophy, tumbling onto the turf.
