Captain Burrell is also appealing for calm among sections of the public calling for his resignation as president of the Jamaica Football Federation.
With only two more matches remaining in the six-nation qualifying tournament the Reggae Boyz face an unlikely chance of qualifying if they can secure a fourth- place play-off spot.
Captain Burrell says a president's tenure is not dependent on whether or not the country qualifies for the senior World Cup.
He says a president's tenure is dependent on the overall work achieved in developing the football programmes in the country.
Jamaica sit at the bottom of the table after eight matches with four points, behind Mexico and Panama on eight points each.
Honduras are third with 11 points, while Costa Rica 15 points and the USA 16 have already booked their spots to Brazil.
