FIFA asks for details of victory speeches ahead of election – AP

The AP is reporting that FIFA has asked its presidential candidates to provide details of their intended victory speeches ahead of Friday’s election.

The five contenders have also been provided by FIFA with suggested answers to use in the post-vote news conference.

Soccer’s scandal-tarnished governing body is protective of its public image while trying to preserve its victim status in American criminal corruption investigations, attempting to prove a commitment to reform.

Candidate Gianni Infantino told The Associated Press that he will speak to the emergency congress “without any fear and, on the contrary, saying what I think.”

Fifa’s 209 nations will gather in Zurich this Friday for what is billed as an “extraordinary congress” with election to replace the suspended Sepp Blatter
