Gianni Infantino has won Fifa’s election for a
new president, it has been announced.
Uefa’s general secretary secured 115 votes in
the second round of polls, beating off
favourite Salman Bin Ibrahim al-Khalifa into
second while Prince Ali bin Hussein finished
third.
Infantino succeeds the dethroned Sepp Blatter,
who was suspended from all football activities
for eight years – later reduced to six – along
with ex-Uefa president Michel Platini for
corruption.
“I cannot express my feelings in this moment,”
he said after hearing the result.
“I told you I went through an exceptional
journey, which made me meet many fantastic
people, who live and breathe football, and
many people deserve to see Fifa is highly
respected.
“Everyone in the world will applaud us for
what we will do. Everyone will be proud of
what we will do.
“I want to work with you to establish a new era
in which we can put football at the centre
stage.
!We need to implement the reforms, but we
also need to have respect, the respect that the
entire world owes to football, and make sure
that finally, once again, we can focus on this
wonderful world that is football. I am too
moved – let us work together for this.”
