Sepp Blatter could extend his time as Fifa President beyond 2015 by standing for re-election.
He had previously stated that his current term in office would be his last after being re-elected in 2011.
However he now seems to have had a change of heart after claiming he has a “mission” to complete before ending his 17-year stint.
“I’m now 38 years in Fifa and I have this mission and I want to fulfil my mission,” he told BBC. “I feel young enough to be in this office and to make this office a success.
“It keeps you young also if you’ve got a mission – and I’ve got a mission.”
Blatter is the eighth president of Fifa, having succeeded Joao Havelange in 1998.
