World Soccer - - The World -

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.
