Defeated FIFA presidential candidate Sheikh Salman bin Ebrahim al-Khalifa has urged FIFA to remain United as they hope for a brighter future in the governance of Football all over the world.

Ebrahim al-Khalifa offered his backing to Gianni Infantino after the Swiss triumphed at Friday’s election in Zurich and in his speech as president of the Asian Football Confederation, he called upon all stakeholders to reinstate football’s credibility globally.

“Asia is the world’s most populous continent where football continues to develop at an impressive pace. Through its own reform process and the new AFC Vision and Mission, the AFC will play an active role in the reform process.”
He added: “In these unprecedented times world football needs unity. With the FIFA reform package having been voted through today there is now real momentum for world football to reinstate its credibility.
“The new FIFA needs to become more inclusive and reflect the diversity of world football. I trust Gianni Infantino will provide the leadership to achieve this, as well as the rest of the reforms that are now urgently needed.”
