"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 tabloid.

Blick said that Blatter's comments came in response to questions about his future during a debate it had organised between representatives of the Swiss business and sporting world at the Zurich headquarters of its publisher, Ringier.

Fifa, which is also based in Zurich, has been steered by Swiss citizen Blatter since 1998.
