• Sepp Blatter says 96-year-old Brazilian 'has to go'
• Fifa president won't rule out standing for another term
The Fifa president, Sepp Blatter, says world football's governing body should remove the honorary presidency it bestowed on his predecessor, João Havelange.
Blatter told the Swiss newspaper Sonntags Blick in an interview published on Sunday that Havelange "has to go".
In May at a Fifa congress in Budapest he had led a standing ovation for the ailing 96-year-old Brazilian but pressure on Blatter has grown after Fifa published a Swiss prosecutor's report last week confirming Havelange accepted kickbacks from the marketing agency ISL in the 1990s, while Blatter was a senior Fifa official.
