FIFA: Presidential election candidates confirmed
Seven candidates will stand in FIFA’s presidential elections on 26 February, BBC reports.
The candidates are: Prince Ali bin al-Hussein, Musa Bility, Jerome Champagne, Gianni Infantino, Michel Platini, Sheikh Salman bin Ebrahim al-Khalifa and Tokyo Sexwale.
Trinidadian ex-footballer David Nakhid was not included on the list, despite saying he had submitted his candidacy.
The election is to find a successor to the suspended Sepp Blatter, who is under criminal investigation.
The Swiss 79-year-old announced he would be stepping down in June, with world football’s governing body at the centre of a corruption scandal.
