South Korea’s Chung Mong-Joon says he will run for FIFA president and has pledged to help the governing body clean itself up if he gets elected. “Today FIFA is undergoing a profound crisis. Under these circumstances, the FIFA president must be a crisis manager and a reformer,” said the 63-year-old, who is a former FIFA vice-president. “The problem at FIFA is that those mired in corruption, the only thing they are interested in is hiding the corruption. The real reason FIFA has become such a corrupt organisation is because the same person has been running it for 40 years. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.” The election to succeed Sepp Blatter takes place on 26 February.
