Blatter reiterates decision to continue as FIFA chief

Frankfurt: Sepp Blatter backed his decision of not relinquishing his position as FIFA president and said a Swiss probe against him is "not correct".
He does not intend to resign immediately, he told a German weekly magazine.
Top sponsors of the international soccer body last week called for his resignation.
"The situation is not pleasant," Blatter told the weekly, Bunte. "I am being condemned without there being any evidence for wrongdoing on my part. That is really outrageous."
"This is just an investigation, not an indictment," he said. "I will fight until February 26. For myself. For FIFA. I am convinced that evil will come to light and good will prevail."
Earlier this year in June, four days after winning a fifth term, Blatter said he would step down in the wake of corruption investigations by US and Swiss authorities. He remains in office ahead of a scheduled February election.
