Blatter told the workers that he technically had not
resigned on June 2 but had pledged to lay down his mandate when an election
congress could be called.
In his speech on June 2, Blatter also pledged he would not
be a candidate at the next election.
FIFA says Friday that Blatter sticks by his June 2 speech.For
