Zuirch - FIFA says president Sepp Blatter has not made a U-turn on his plans to leave office.
FIFA responded after a Swiss newspaper reported comments made by Blatter late on Thursday to construction workers at FIFA's new museum in Zurich.
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 on Friday that Blatter sticks by his June 2 speech.
