Gianni Infantino Re-Elected For A Second Term As FIFA president

FIFA President, Gianni Infantino was on Wednesday June 5th re-elected by acclamation for a second term as FIFA president at the Congress of world football’s governing body in Paris.
The 49 year-old, who took charge of FIFA in February 2016 after Sepp Blatter departure, stood unopposed for a new four-year term which will run until 2023.
Earlier, Infantino had insisted that FIFA had been transformed into an organisation “synonymous with credibility” as he addressed representatives of the 211 member federations, before the Women’s World Cup begins in the French capital on Friday.
He said: “Today nobody talks about crises, nobody talks about rebuilding FIFA from scratch, nobody talks about scandals, nobody talks about corruption, we talk about football. The very least we can say is that we have turned the situation around.
“In three years and four months, this organisation went from being toxic, almost criminal, to being what it should be, an organisation that develops football, an organisation that cares about football”.
