Beckham Backs Figo For FIFA Presidency

Former Real Madrid midfielder David Beckham has backed his former teammate Luis Figo to become the new FIFA President.

Breaking: Figo To Challenge Blatter For FIFA Presidency

The Portuguese shocked the world last month as he decided to run against current president Sepp Blatter in May.

Former England captain, Beckham, believes that Figo is the right type of candidate to lead the football governing body, as he is passionate about the game and wants what is best for the supporters.

“I welcome the candidacy of my friend Luis for Fifa president," Beckham told the Guardian.

“Any successful organisation needs to have good people who are passionate about the game and want to do the best for fans.

“Fifa will only benefit from having a wide range of strong candidates present their visions for the game, and it’s good to see people volunteer. I wish Luis and the other candidates well.”

Figo has recently served on the Uefa Football Committee, from 2011 to 2015, and is focusing his campaign on better governance, more transparency, increased solidarity and the protection of true football values.
