cheap fifa 16 coins version of a clean break
cheap fifa 16 coins version of a clean break, fresh-start, man of the people candidate. The Jordanian prince and long-term Fifa insider – who said in 2012 he had “definitely … absolutely no ambitions” to be president – remains the bookies’ choice, though insiders aren’t so convinced. He took Sepp Blatter to the second round in May.
Links to old regime: Anti-Blatter, but heavily embedded in Fifa’s football family. Served as an FA president since 1999 and a Fifa vice-president since 2011. When he announced his candidacy he looked to reassure Fifa colleagues: “I am one of you, and I know how hard you strive to define football.”
Fresh start rating: About as fresh as it gets, by Fifa standards. Was one of only three Fifa executives – out of 26 – to turn down a free luxury Parmigiani watch in a gift bag in 2014. “I’m new and young,” he says. 4/10
Sheikh Salman bin Ebrahim al-Khalifa
Bahrain, 49. Odds 4-1
Even Blatter was never accused of being complicit in the torture of footballers. That’s what Sheikh Salman brings to the table – an allegation, related to www.utfifa.co Bahrain’s 2011 crackdown on pro-democracy protestors, which he vehemently denies. He says human rights groups are spreading “false, nasty lies … some people have an agenda on their table”.
