“It’s a privilege to be in London today to unveil my 90 day plan and set out in detail my priorities for FIFA and the changes I will implement if I am elected President on 26 February. For too long the scandal and corruption that has engulfed FIFA has taken centre-stage and I believe my proposals will help put Football back in the spotlight where it belongs.

“My vision for FIFA and for Football is based on the many discussions I have had with Association heads in recent weeks and months and these conversations have reaffirmed my view that change is needed now. We must seize this opportunity to reach the next generation of football fans and players around the world. The global game has spoken and we must deliver the change that is neccessary for the good of the game.

“Associations are the bedrock of our game and between now and the 26 February I look forward to meeting with more colleagues to discuss how we can work collaboratively to deliver meaningful change and take FIFA into a new era. I will continue to work tirelessly to restore trust in FIFA and create a trustworthy governing body that governs, grows and nurtures the game in a responsible and accountable way. Together we can take FIFA Forward.”
