ZURICH, May 29. /TASS/. The International Federation of Football Associations (FIFA) needs not a revolution but evolution, FIFA President Sepp Blatter said making his bid for a fifth term at the organisation's helm on Friday.
"We don’t need revolutions but we always need evolutions," Blatter told the FIFA congress.
"I am being held accountable for the current storm. So be it, I will shoulder that responsibility. I will fix FIFA together with you. We need to recover our good name and we’ll start tomorrow morning," said Blatter who has headed FIFA since 1998.
"I just want to stay with you, continue with you," he said. "If you want me, I thank you for it."
Blatter, 79, is believed to beat his single opponent, Prince Ali Bin Al-Hussein of Jordan, in today's vote for the FIFA president.
The election follows an unprecedented corruption scandal, which flared up in FIFA on Wednesday morning as seven of the organization’s high-ranking officials were arrested in Zurich on bribery, money laundering and corruption charges at the US request and are now facing extradition to the United States.
