Gianni Infantino appointed, the new FIFA president

General Secretary of UEFA, Gianni Infantino, has been elected as the new FIFA President at the Extraordinary FIFA Congress. He defeated Prince Ali bin al-Hussein, Sheikh Salman bin Ebrahim al-Khalifa, and Jerome Champagne, while Tokyo Sexwale withdrew his candidacy during the congress.

Speaking after his victory, he said: “I cannot express my feelings in this moment. I told you I went through an exceptional journey, which made me meet many fantastic people, who live and breathe football, and many people deserve to see FIFA is highly respected.“Everyone in the world will applaud us for what we will do. Everyone will be proud of what we will do.”

Congrats to him!
