Former Brazil star Zico wants to run for the presidency of FIFA, even though he believes the odds are stacked against him being elected. The 62-year-old former playmaker said that, “there’s a possibility now for change.”
FIFA President Sepp Blatter announced his resignation last week, amid alleged bribery and corruption involving the 2010, 2018 and 2022 World Cups.
“I would like to confirm this decision about the possibility of being a candidate in the next FIFA election,” Zico told a news conference in his native Rio de Janeiro. “I feel capable of this.”
