Fifa president Sepp Blatter says he will not stand as a candidate at an extraordinary congress, which official date would soon be confirmed.

The 79-year-old, on Saturday, told a Swiss newspaper, Walliser Bote: “I am not a candidate, I am the president. And I want to hand over FIFA in good condition.”

He had on Friday told Swiss daily newspaper Blick that he had not resigned, insinuating he has subjected himself and office to the Fifa Congress.

Speaking to the newspaper based in the Valais region on Saturday, Blatter highlighted the reforms that he looks forward to passing into effect.

“I will use all my strength and inspiration until my last working day to bring this ship back into safe harbour,” Blatter is quoted by Walliser Bote as saying.
