Current FIFA president Joseph Blatter rules out standing for election again in February 2016 at an extraordinary FIFA congress.

"I will not be a candidate for the election in 2016," Blatter said at a press conference. "It is not only for a president but a new president and I can't be that as I'm the old president."

When asked by reporters what he would do when no longer FIFA president, Blatter said he would return to his hobby of journalism and attempt to work in radio.
