By Mike Collett LONDON (Reuters) - FIFA is facing a turning point in its history with the end of president Sepp Blatter's 17-year grip on power. Here are some of the men who might be candidates: Michel Platini, France, 59. The current UEFA president was once close to Blatter but they gradually drifted apart.
(Reuters) - Former Brazil international Zico has expressed a desire to run for president of FIFA following Sepp Blatter's shock resignation on Tuesday. Blatter rocked the world of soccer by unexpectedly saying he would step down as FIFA president in the wake of a corruption investigation that reportedly may include the embattled chief himself. The 62-year-old Zico, who played in three World Cups, served as Brazil's sports minister in the 1990s and has decades of experience at all levels of the game including management stints in Japan, Turkey, Russia, Greece and the Middle East.
