Sepp Blatter has been told to abide by his promise to stand down as head of football governing body Fifa.

Blatter announced on June 2 that he would step down at an extraordinary congress to elect his “successor” between December and March 2016.

The 79-year-old however on Thursday made some insinuations which tried to differentiate between “resigning” and handing over his mandate to the Fifa Congress in an interview with Swiss newspaper Blick.

“The times of flirting with the power are definitely gone,” independent chairman of Fifa audit and compliance committee, Domenico Scala, said in a statement.

“I call on all concerned- including Mr Blatter- to endorse in the interest of the reforms unequivocally the announced changing of the guard at the top of Fifa.”

Fifa has been hit with its biggest scandal in history following bribery allegations and indictment of racketeering, conspiracy and corruption in a separate investigation by Swiss and United States authorities.

Announcing his farewells at a hastily organised press conference four days after his re-election, Blatter said: “While I have a mandate from the membership of FIFA, I do not feel that I have a mandate from the entire world of football– the fans, the players, the clubs, the people who live, breathe and love football as much as we all do at FIFA.”

“Therefore, I have decided to lay down my mandate at an extraordinary elective Congress. I will continue to exercise my functions as FIFA President until that election.”
