Platini’s Odds Drifting As FA Withdraw Support

Michel Platini’s fall from grace continues as the one-time 1/3 favourite to become the next FIFA President, is now 11/2 third favourite with William Hill.


Prince Ali bin al-Hussein heads the betting at 4/5 with Sheikh Salman bin Ebrahim al Khalifa the 5/2 second favourite.


“Platini is becoming more and more of an outsider with Prince Ali looking likely to win the Presidential race he probably should have done earlier in the year,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.


Next permanent FIFA President: 4/5 Prince Ali bin al-Hussein; 5/2 Sheikh Salman bin Ebrahim al Khalifa; 11/2 Michel Platini; 10/1 Issa Hayatou; 12/1 Sheik Ahmad Al-Sabah; 20/1 BAR
