Lowy has brain surgery

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

WEST­FIELD boss Frank Lowy has had brain surgery while on hol­i­day in Europe for an in­jury suf­fered when he fell off the podium dur­ing the A- League grand fi­nal.

Mr Lowy, one of Aus­tralia’s rich­est men and chair­man of Football Fed­er­a­tion Aus­tralia ( FFA), is be­lieved to have sus­tained a blood clot on the brain dur­ing the fall in May.

But the 84- year- old Slo­vakian- born bil­lion­aire was only op­er­ated on when he be­gan to feel ill dur­ing his Euro­pean hol­i­day with wife Shirley late last week.

A West­field state­ment lodged with the Aus­tralian Stock Ex­change yesterday said Mr Lowy “un­der­went a sur­gi­cal pro­ce­dure to cor­rect a com­pli­ca­tion most likely from his fall dur­ing the pre­sen­ta­tion at the A- League grand fi­nal in May”.

Mr Lowy tum­bled and hit his head while pre­sent­ing the ALeague tro­phy to Mel­bourne Vic­tory play­ers at Mel­bourne’s AAMI Park on May 17.
