FIFA president, Gianni Infantino whose tenure recently came to an end has been re-elected to reprise his role. Infantino was re-elected by acclamation on Wednesday June 5th for a second term as FIFA president at the Congress of world football’s governing body in Paris. The 49 year-old Infantino, first became the president of the association in February 2016 after the departure of the shamed Sepp Blatter. During the electioneering period, Infantino stood unopposed for a new four-year term which will run until 2023. While addressing representatives of the 211 member federations, Infantino shared that FIFA had been transformed into an organisation “synonymous with credibility.” 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.”Photo Credit: Getty
