Zurich - The independent chairperson of FIFA's audit and compliance committee. Domenico Scala, on Sunday weighed in on recent comments by the president of world soccer's governing body, Sepp Blatter, that had led to speculation about his future plans.

"I call on all concerned, including Mr. Blatter, to endorse in the interest of the reforms unequivocally the announced changing of the guard at the top of FIFA," said Scala.

Blatter said on June 2 that he would step down at an as-yet unscheduled special FIFA congress, but recent comments have fuelled speculation that his decision was less than final.

"The times of flirting with power are definitely gone," Scala said.
