Paper: FIFA President Blatter says has not resigned

Sepp Blatter has told a Swiss newspaper he has not quit as FIFA president, adding to speculation he may try to stay on as head of world soccer's governing body that is gripped by a corruption scandal.
"I have not resigned, rather I am offering my mandate at an extraordinary congress," Blatter is quoted as telling Swiss newspaper Blick in an article published on Friday.
The paper said Blatter had spoken on Thursday at his first public appearance since the June 2 news conference where he said he would step down as FIFA president and call a leadership election in the wake of the corruption scandal.
