The FIFA president is scheduled to speak at a staff meeting, which is being characterized as a regular gathering that takes place at least once a month rather than the stage for a sudden announcement.

Blatter is awaiting a possible announcement from the FIFA ethics committee on whether he will be suspended as a result of the Swiss investigation into possible criminal mismanagement and misappropriation of FIFA money.

Blatter adviser Klaus Stoehlker told The Associated Press about the staff meeting, which is planned for 4 p.m. local time. Blatter is due to hand over power after February's election.
