Platini Drifts Drastically In FIFA Presidential Market

Michel Platini’s odds of being named as the next FIFA President have drifted following the latest revelations according to William Hill. Offered at 1/3 on Friday morning he is now 11/10  - while Sepp Blatter has been removed from the market and Issa Hayatou has tumbled from 33/1 to 7/1 third favourite for the gig.


“This market is very volatile given the revelations that continue to spill out of Switzerland and Prince Ali could return to favouritism before the end of the weekend,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.


Next permanent FIFA President: 11/10 Michel Platini; 7/4 Prince Ali bin al-Hussein; 7/1 Issa Hayatou; 12/1 Sheik Ahmad Al-Sabah; 14/1 Chung Mon-Joon; 16/1 Luis Figo; 25/1 BAR
