Former Chelsea manager José Mourinho was today at Wembley to endorse Gianni Infantino‘s race to FIFA presidency.
The Swiss UEFA general secretary claimed:
“I feel a lot of emotion and a big responsibility,’ The 45-year-old told a news conference at Wembley.
“The image and reputation of FIFA is not very high and it has to rise again. All these legends here are a testimony for the love we have for football.
“Let’s open the doors of the FIFA administration, the secretary general does not have to be a European, why not an African? There are many capable people in Africa, we have to open the doors of FIFA to men and women from all over the world.
‘”here is no problem in distributing $1.2billion when revenue is $5bn”.
Also ex England coach Fabio Capello and football legend Luis Figo- former candidate to the FIFA presidency- were present at the launch of Infantino’s campaign.
