BERNE - Sepp Blatter has
used Twitter to deny that he will quit
as FIFA President before the end of his mandate and said he had
not made a deal for Michel Platini to replace him.
"The suggestion that I intend to stop my four-year mandate
before its end is simply ridiculous," Blatter, 75, said on
Twitter on Wednesday.
"The suggestion of a reported 'deal' between me and Michel
Platini for the FIFA presidency is pure nonsense."
Blatter was re-elected for a fourth term in June, keeping
him in office until 2015. He has said he will not stand again
Former France captain Platini, the UEFA President, is widely
seen as a possible successor to the Swiss and his mandate also
ends in 2015.
