Player power on its way
Michel Platini was fond of saying that football should be run by players and not administrators. That day is coming.
Angel Maria Villar, an ex-midfielder for Spain, has been joined on the FIFA governing bodies by former Yugoslav forward Dejan Savicevic, and on the UEFA ExCo by Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, twice a World Cup runner-up with West Germany.
Meanwhile, Gianni Infantino has Zvonimir Boban as a deputy secretarygeneral and Marco Van Basten as chief officer for technical development.
