“Let us not expect a great revolution. Since there is no president, [FIFA] needs to choose a new one. This is normal. They just have to choose a man who will clean the image of FIFA, sort some things out. He will guide the reform process that has already been initiated, but too late – in my opinion – by the former President Blatter,” Listkiewicz said, adding that the football community would be at an advantage if the president remained a European.

The field of hopefuls to replace Sepp Blatter as FIFA president included Middle Eastern royalty, businessmen, veteran soccer administrators and at least one former political prisoner.
