Football Association chairman Greg Dyke has said that re-elected FIFA president Sepp Blatter would not be completing his term this time around and would be surprised if the FIFA president lasts two more years.

Blatter was re-elected two days after the football world’s governing body was plunged into most serious scandal of all times in which seven of the officials were arrested with corruption charges.

However, disappointed with his appointment, Dyke said that it was not over and the third of the delegates have had enough of his failure to deal with corruption, the BBC reported.

He insisted that he would be very surprised if Blatter was still in the job for two more years.

According to Dyke, Blatter’s leadership has been seriously affected since he became FIFA president for the first time in 1998.

Dyke claimed that this had not happened to him in last 16 years and for all those 16 years there have been levels of corruptions.

His Football association counterpart from Ireland, John Delaney, also agreed with him saying that the Swiss would not complete another term.

Blatter, who became the president for the fifth consecutive time, won almost two thirds of votes before rival Prince Ali bin al-Hussein of Jordan withdrew from the race.
