Sheikh Salman manifesto aims to rise FIFA from 'ashes'

KUALA LUMPUR: Bahraini royal Sheikh Salman bin Ebrahim al-Khalifa, a FIFA presidential hopeful, has launched his campaign for the job with a promise to make the global soccer body rise like a phoenix from the ashes.

 “FIFA today is a genuine Phoenix project: under my leadership, we shall employ all professional means to lift the organisation out of its ashes and guarantee a solid lasting and successful rebirth,” Sheikh Salman, the Asian Football Confederation chief, said in a statement posted on his campaign website Wednesday.

 Sheikh Salman said there was an urgent need to restructure FIFA by splitting football events and governance issues from the commercial, financial and funding of the organisation.
