It’s now or never for FIFA to reform ¨C Infantino
FIFA Presidential candidate Gianni Infantino says reforming the scandal-plagued planet soccer governing physique needs to take place quickly to restore self-assurance within the sport.
Speaking at London’s Wembley Stadium, he gave no certain indication why he would seek to broaden FIFA’s power base as he launched his action program for his first 3 months in office.
He also admitted it is actually ‘now or never’ to restore credibility to planet football’s scandal-hit governing body.
‘I consider it’s now or in no way. Now we’ve to take this opportunity, now we’ve got to take the turn, we’ve got to produce a better FIFA, we’ve got to perform for football altogether within a united way, inside a optimistic way, and this is the correct moment to do that.’
‘Certainly I can assure you of that. Needless to say you talk about with every person when you are a polite particular person you speak with every person and campaign is about convincing men and women to vote for you.
‘But the position of FIFA President along with the candidacy for FIFA President is some thing that brings with it a big responsibility and must be taken extremely seriously, and that’s what I’m undertaking, I’m a candidate for the FIFA Presidency and absolutely nothing else, and I stand for the FIFA Presidency until the finish.’
The likes of Ex-Cameroon and Real Madrid star, Geremi Njitap, former Portugal midfielder Luis Figo and his compatriot Jose Mourinho show their support for FIFA presidential candidate Gianni Infantino who says he wouldn’t automatically choose a European to be his secretary general.
As well as Infantino, Frenchman Jerome Champagne, Prince Ali bin Al-Hussein of Jordan, Tokyo Sexwale of South Africa and Sheikh Salman Ebrahim Al Khalifa of Bahrain are also standing for election as FIFA president.
