The 82-year-old Blatter is banned from official football duty until October 2021 for financial misconduct during this 17-year rule.

"I should have stopped after the 2014 World Cup which was a wonderful World Cup", he said.

Soccer fans from China have snapped up 40,000 tickets for the Fifa World Cup in Russian Federation that kicked off on Thursday, even though its national team failed to qualify.

Swiss Blatter, who was suspended in 2015, also said he felt "abandoned" by Federation Internationale de Football Association and that he should have stepped aside earlier.

He has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing despite his ban and struck a defiant tone in Moscow, describing the criminal probe as "an attack on FIFA" and saying he was still president of the organisation. "But in the past we have seen that there is political intervention for football", he said.
