Chung Mong-joon wishes to stand for FIFA’s presidency

London: Former FIFA vice-president Chung Mong-joon on Monday said he is all set to run in the FIFA presidency election in February to replace Sepp Blatter.

South Korea’s Chung Mong-joon assured that if he got elected, his work would be to change the present condition of the organisation and not to enjoy the luxury, the BBC reported.

According to him, the UEFA president Michel Platini, who declared his intentions to run for the FIFA presidency election, was not a right man for the football association.

The election for the appointment of new FIFA president will take place on 26 February, with Sepp Blatter standing down amidst a corruption crisis engulfing the football’s governing body.

FIFA’s image has been hampered after 14 sports marketing executives and football officials, including several from Zurich-based FIFA, were indicted by the United States in late May over corruption charges.(ANI)
