Disgraced former FIFA president Sepp Blatter, forced out as head of world football's governing body amid a corruption scandal in 2015, admitted Sunday he regretted not stepping down earlier.The 81-year-old was banned over ethics breaches, bringing an end to his 17-year reign as FIFA chief, following a suspect 2 million Swiss franc ($2 million) payment to ex-UEFA president Michel Platini.Blatter was also asked about a report in German newspaper Der Spiegel that current FIFA chief Gianni Infantino had feared being dismissed as the subject of another ethics committee investigation.FIFA assured last month "no investigation" had been opened into Infantino after sources said his role in the Confederation of African football's presidential elections was being looked into.
