Candidates To Take Over Sepp Blatter’s FIFA Presidency

Football fans around the world are sick and tired of Sepp Blatter, and we in the Fan Park crew feel that change could be good! These are the five most promising candidates to become the next FIFA President.

Luis Figo

The former Real Madrid and Barcelona star will undoubtedly gather a lot of public support and has a reputation as an administrator since retiring from football. He has vowed to end corruption and make FIFA a respectable organisation. However, his relatively small amount of experience may hinder him slightly.

Jerome Champagne

Champagne may be the most promising candidate, after spending 11 years as FIFA’s deputy secretary general. However, he left that post with his reputation intact and is widely regarded as a clean, incorruptible candidate. He insists FIFA’s problems are systematic and not Blatter’s fault, but he does believe that he has what it takes to eradicate these flaws in the system.

Prince Ali bin Al-Hussein

Al-Hussein stands as the “connected” candidate and is the man who can easily win a lot of influence, which makes him an incredibly promising option to win the election. His experience in the Asian Confederation will mean that he can put a lot of focus into that part of the world, which could prove pivotal.

Michael van Praag

The current president of the Dutch FA was also once Ajax’s president and presided over one of the best spells in the club’s history. He has a lot of support from major European associations, but is an unpopular candidate elsewhere and is unlikely to make it very far in the race.

David Ginola

The former French international’s candidacy has pretty much been written off as a publicity stunt, but if Ginola can work his way around several rules that would block his candidacy, he could be a dark horse in this race, given his charm and popularity.

Let’s see if one of these men can gather the necessary support and bring an end to the corruption that has been haunting the beautiful game for way too many years!

Which candidate would you vote for in the next FIFA election?
