Infantino publishes FIFA presidential manifesto

Jan 21, 2016 FIFA presidential candidate Gianni Infantino recently published his election manifesto ahead of the February 26 election.

The election will be taking place against the backdrop of a massive corruption scandal, which has seen 41 individuals and entities charged in the United States.

The manifesto was presented during a meeting of the Caribbean Football Union, which has 25 votes in the election.

Infantino is one of five FIFA presidential candidates including Sheikh Salman Bin Ebrahim Al Khalifa, Jerome Champagne, Tokyo Sexwale and Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein.

Infantino, who is currently general secretary of European football body UEFA, has dismissed speculation of a deal with Sheikh Salman that the pair would avoid direct confrontation between the AFC and UEFA.

The corruption crisis within FIFA has broken apart the longstanding political loyalties within the Caribbean which had previously voted as a block for Blatter.
