Infantino reveals FIFA presidential manifesto

UEFA general secretary Gianni Infantino has published his manifesto for the FIFA election which will take place in Zurich on February 26.

The 45-year-old, who said he would press for the World Cup to be held in a whole region rather than one or two countries, is standing against Sheikh Salman bin Ebrahim Al Khalifa, the head of the Asian Football Confederation, Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein of Jordan, South Africa’s Tokyo Sexwale and Jerome Champagne, a former FIFA deputy secretary general from France.

The FIFA election is taking place against the backdrop of a massive corruption scandal which has seen 41 individuals and entities charged in the United States and outgoing president Sepp Blatter banned for eight years from all football-related activities for breaching ethics rules.
