Blatter tells CONCACAF: My desire to lead FIFA still burns stronger than ever

Sepp Blatter has told CONCACAF football leaders that his desire to be FIFA president "burns stronger than ever."

The FIFA leader says "I am at your disposal" to be a candidate in an election next May.

Blatter has been asking FIFA members in a tour of six confederation meetings to support him at the end of their annual congresses on Wednesday.

Addressing delegates from North and Central America and the Caribbean, Blatter says "my mission, our mission together is not yet finished."

Blatter adds "I'll be honest with you it still burns, it still burns stronger than ever to go forwards."

Blatter was due to address members of Oceania and UEFA later Tuesday.

Europe's UEFA is the one confederation preparing to oppose Blatter's wish for a fifth term.
