France's Champagne to make fresh bid for FIFA president

NULL

France's Jerome Champagne will make another bid for FIFA president. The former deputy secretary general said football's world governing body was "in danger" following numerous scandals in recent years. "We need to save FIFA and its role of governance and redistribution, which is in danger at a time when they are needed the most," said Champagne in a letter to FIFA's 209 member associations. "We must also restore FIFA's credibility and prepare it for the challenges of an ever-evolving world." FIFA will elect its next president on Feb. 26. Other candidates for the presidency include Jordanian Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein and former Trinidad and Tobago midfielder David Nakhid.
