UEFA president, Michel Platini, has withdrawn his support for FIFA president Sepp Blatter ahead of next year's election.
Blatter has recently announced he will run for re-election for a fifth term despite the controversies surrounding his career, including those regarding the the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
The 78-year-old has come under massive criticism since labelling recent reports by the Sunday Day Times as 'racism' and several officials have called for Blatter to step down.
"I am no longer supporting him, it's finished," Platini told the BBC.
"He knows it, I told him. I think FIFA needs a new breath of fresh air."
Blatter was initially elected in 1998, and even his initial campaign was embroiled in controversy, with allegations that he bribed FIFA officials to vote for him.
Platini, who has served as the UEFA head since 2006, has not yet decided whether he will run against Blatter or not.
