Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein has officially submitted his candidature to become the president of football’s scandal-hit world governing body FIFA.

The Jordanian was beaten by current leader Sepp Blatter in the May elections just days before the latter announced he would step aside amid a deepening corruption scandal.

But after Blatter and UEFA boss and presidential hopeful Michel Platini were suspended for 90 days last week by FIFA’s ethics committee as a result of a Swiss criminal investigation, Prince Ali has now become the front runner to be elected in February.
