controversy-plagued 2022 Qatar World Cup, declared to the FIFA Congress in Sao Paulo on

UEFA president Michel Platini has said that FIFA president Sepp Blatter no longer has his support.

Blatter, who has been under pressure over the controversy-plagued 2022 Qatar World Cup, declared to the FIFA Congress in Sao Paulo on

Wednesday that he was ready for a new mandate despite having said in 2011 he would not seek re-election for a fifth term.

However, Platini, who is yet to decide whether to contest the FIFA presidential election himself, believes world football needs a new

leader despite his respect for the 78-year-old Swiss.


FIFA President Sepp Blatter has declared he intends to stand for another term as leader of the world's governing body and describe

"I am supporting him no longer, it's finished," said Frenchman Platini.

"I supported him in 1998 but I do not support him in 2014. And in the future I will not support Mr Blatter.                 

"He knows it, I told him. I think FIFA needs a new breath of fresh air.

"In 2011 he asked for our support Adidas F50 Adizero Messi and told us that that would be his last term."

A number of leading European football officials have already voiced their opposition to Blatter being given a fifth term this week,

including FA chairman Greg Dyke, FA vice-chairman David Gill and Dutch FA chief Michael van Praag, and Platini agrees with their

views.

"I share the European position," said the 58-year-old. "A new mandate for him would not be good for football. But he is a person one

has to respect and he has Nike Mercurial Vapor IX FG all my respect."

At present there is just one candidate to run against Blatter for the FIFA presidency - former FIFA deputy secretary-general Jerome

Champagne - and Platini is still not ready to commit himself.                

"It is an option to run but it is not because Sepp Blatter is a candidate that Michel Platini won't be," said Platini.

"My only concern is what I want Nike Mercurial Vapor Superfly III FG to do. I'm nearly 60 and I need to know what I want to do. I'm taking my time.          

"It's not as if choosing between UEFA and FIFA is like choosing between hospital and prison. There's nothing negative about this

choice. When I undertake something, it's to win."
