Salman urged to run for FIFA presidency….


Shaikh Salman, the most powerful man in Asian football, says “senior” figures in the game have told him to run for the FIFA presidency. In a letter to members of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) executive committee, the 49-year-old Bahraini said he is not yet a candidate. But he added he had been urged to stand “by a growing number of senior football administrators, FIFA members and personalities of public life”. The election takes place in February.
