Blatter, 77, has said he is "not yet tired."

Blatter, who turns 78 in March, has been the president of FIFA since 1998 after taking over from Joao Havelange.

“Let me repeat what I have been saying. I am not yet tired enough to decide that I will retire,” he told L’Equipe 21 TV, according the Telegraph.

“Having said, that everything is open. I will certainly take a stand before this year’s Congress.”
