Sepp Blatter wants more time to smarten up footballs murky image.

After a quarter century at the top levels of footballs world governing body, the FIFA president remains frustrated theres so much wrong with the global game.

If I look down I am happy. If I look up and look at the national teams I am happy, he said.

But what is in betweenthe big leagues, the big clubs, the so-called rich clubs, then Im not happy. When it comes to moneymaking then, all of a sudden, the rich are becoming richer and the poor, where are they

Blatter, elected FIFA president in 1998 after 17 years as Joao Havelanges secretary general, plans to seek a third term next year.
