Zico urges FIFA to change election rules

  • Former Brazil great Zico urged world football's governing body FIFA to change its presidential election rules.

    The 62-year-old, who plans to run for FIFA's top job at an election in February, met with outgoing president Sepp Blatter in Zurich on Tuesday, media reports said.

    His bid has been stymied by a FIFA rule stipulating that candidates must receive support from at least five national federations.

    So far, backed only by Brazil, Zico has until October 26 to be endorsed by four other federations. (Source: IANS)
