David Gill, vice chairman of the English FA and Micheal Van Praag, head of the Dutch FA have gone on record to say that Blatters tenure should come to an end when it is up for renewal next year.
In 2011, Blatter was re-instated for a further 4 year term and he, himself stated that it would be his last and he would stand down. Many thought that this was just about right and would allow someone fresh to takeover with new ideas and a different approach.
However, apparently there has been a change of heart by the FIFA president and he has now hinted at continuing in his role at the top.
Michel Platini, the UEFA president is a strong candidate but has claimed that he would not confirm if he is in the running until December.
The Sunday Times newspaper in England ran an expose of Qatars bidding process and how it was corrupt. This has lead to an investigation.
Blatter in reacting to the allegations, attacked the English newspaper by saying that their motives for the expose were fueled by racism and discrimination.
The plot thickens!
