Michel Platini to leave UEFA in 2019 if FIFA presidential election bid fails

The former French international captain is favoured by many to take over as FIFA president after Blatter steps down. His former French international teammate, Luis Fernandez, speaks his praises and supports his decision to run for the position.
ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno and Brian McBride discuss the controversial comments made by potential FIFA reformist, Francois Carrard, who called the game in the US, "an ethnic sport for girls in schools."

Former South Korean FA president Chung Mong-joon has vowed to fix "corrupt" FIFA after formally announcing his bid to replace Sepp Blatter at the helm of world football's governing body.

Michel Platini has announced he will step down as UEFA president in 2019 if he fails to win FIFA's top job in next year's election.

UEFA has already complained about an apparent smear campaign emanating from FIFA's headquarters and Platini, who had...
