Sepp Blatter, I  will not be a candidate in next year’s FIFA presidential elections

SeppBlatter_3327568FIFA have announced that they will hold an extraordinary congress to elect a new president on 26 February 2016 and Sepp Blatter has confirmed that he will not be a candidate.

Having been re-elected as president on 29 May, Blatter announced four days later that he was going to stand down after a pair of investigations were announced into corruption at world football’s ruling body.

However, Blatter’s decision not to resign immediately has led to speculation that he may yet put himself up for election once again next year.
But, when questioned at a press conference in Zurich on Monday, he said: “On February 26, FIFA will have a new president.

“I will not be a candidate for the election in 2016 and there will be election for a new president. I cannot be the new president because I am the old president.
