FIFA president Sepp Blatter wants his detractors to contest and take him down rather than just criticize him.


Blatter said that people, who believe that he should not be a candidate or should not get elected, can take the risk to be in an election.

He said that if people never take the risk, they will never have a chance. But if one takes the risk they also have the chance to lose.

However, Blatter's words appeared to be aimed at UEFA president Michel Platini who is seen as a possible rival to Blatter, although the Frenchman has yet to decide whether he will enter the race, News24.com reported.

Blatter also suggested that five-times World Cup winners Brazil needed FIFA development programmes just like other countries, following their debacle at the World Cup where they lost 7-1 to Germany in the semi-finals.
