FIFA president Sepp Blatter on Friday, May 9th, 2014 strengthened expectations that he will soon announce his bid for a fifth term as the head of global football.

“I want to do this, because things aren’t over yet. My mandate is running out, but my mission is not finished,” the 78-year-old was quoted as saying by the Swiss Tabloid Blick.

Blatter is widely expected to announce his formal candidacy at the FIFA Congress, before the World Cup, in the Brazilian city of Sao Paulo.

In response to the news reports, FIFA stressed that Blatter’s plan was still to ask the 209 national associations in world body at the congress whether they want him to run again.

The election will be held in 2015.

Blick said Blatter’s comments came in response to questions about his future during a debate it organized in Zurich.

Blatter has been FIFA’s president since 1998. He joined football’s governing body in 1975 and was its secretary general before succeeding Brazilian Joao Havelange as president.
