Bin Hammam to stand against Blatter

Bin Hammam is the only realistic contender to challenge Blatter this term, and has seemed to indicate in the past that he would consider challenging the 75 year old.

Bin Hammam told the Guardian: “People have to try change. Change is good. I have not spoken to Michel Platini for a long time but I told him that if he runs he’d have my full support. That remains the case.”
