Nakhid questions credentials of FIFA presidential rival Platini

  • FIFA presidential candidate David Nakhid, the former Trinidad and Tobago captain, has questioned the credentials of rival Michel Platini, who is also seeking to replace Sepp Blatter as president of the world football governing body.

    Nakhid, who is seeking the support of the Caribbean Football Union's (CFU) 25 FIFA nations, is also questioning Platini's long-standing association with Blatter and his ability to enact changes to a global body that has been rocked by scandal.

    Platini, the president of the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA), has been a FIFA executive committee member for 13 years. (Source: IANS)
