Lowy has brain surgery
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.
