Writing in his Daily Telegraph column, Neville said he normally believed players should "stay out of the politics of the game".

"However this is about players wielding their power against corruption. I would expect management committee members of PFA' s around the world to demand to know what could be done to ensure that the voice of the players was heard."

He added: "I am not suggesting that players should go out on a limb by going on strike, but Fifa and Blatter would be nothing without the players. "It would need to be a co-ordinated and united force".

Blatter faces calls to step down despite re-election

Returning Fifa President Sepp Blatter faces mounting calls to step down after 18 people were arrested in police probes into allegations of kickbacks, bribes and ''rampant'' corruption.

While Blatter is not himself under suspicion of corruption, he may still be questioned by police as part of the US and Swiss investigations.

ITV News Correspondent Paul Davies reports on whether Blatter's image could be tarnished beyond repair:

Sepp Blatter sees off challenger amid crisis at Fifa

Sepp Blatter has been re-elected for a fifth term as Fifa president despite the crisis that has struck football's world governing body this week.

Blatter saw off the challenge from Prince Ali Bin al Hussein after seven Fifa officials were arrested in Zurich and 18 people connected to football were indicted on corruption charges by the US Justice Department.

He won the first election round by 133 votes to 73 and, after Prince Ali decided to withdraw of the race, Blatter was installed as Fifa president for another four years.

Blatter: We will restore Fifa's credibility, starting tomorrow

Re-elected Fifa president Sepp Blatter has said he "takes responsibility" for allegations of corruption under his rule - but added he now wants to look to the future and "restore credibility" to the sporting body.

He said the congress which re-elected him was "difficult" because of a US prosecution which saw 14 people from the organisation indicted, and the subsequent media furore.

His plan to repair the damage to Fifa's reputation would begin tomorrow, he added.

We have to build a better image of Fifa, and I know how to do it.

I cannot disclose it now, but we will do it as from tomorrow morning. We have a meeting of the executive committee and they will listen to me.

They will receive some information or some messages, and some of them will be surprised.
