The election for the next FIFA president is this Friday and we’ve put together a very brief guide to all the candidates in the running to succeed Sepp Blatter!
The current favourite to be the next FIFA president. Sheikh Salman is the head of the Asian Football Confederation with alleged involvement in human-rights violations. We’ll let you make up your own mind if he’s a suitable fit for FIFA.
