FIFA candidate Infantino says Caribbean central to plans

Port of Spain (Trinidad), Jan 31 (IANS) FIFA presidential hopeful Gianni Infantino says he will make the Caribbean priority if he is elected to the organisation’s highest post.

Currently UEFA’s general secretary, Infantino is among six candidates set to contest the February 24 election in Switzerland, in a bid to replace the disgraced incumbent Sepp Blatter, reports CMC.

Prince Ali bin al-Hussein, Musa Bility, Jerome Champagne, Sheikh Salman bin Ebrahim al-Khalifa and Tokyo Sexwale are also campaigning for the post.

“I can bring a lot to this region, to this part of the world. I have seen many presidents who are committed to the game and organizing football, sometimes in difficult circumstances and we have to help,” Infantino said on Saturday.

“We have to ensure that our heart, which is beating for football, can continue to beat for everyone in the region. That is why I am also very happy to be here to continue working in a great partnership together for the future of football.”
