|I am FIFA president, says Issa Hayatou|
Cameroonian football official Issa Hayatou has just released a statement confirming that he is the new Fifa boss, following the suspension of Sepp Blatter.'
“I will serve only on an interim basis,” he said.
“A new president will be chosen by the Extraordinary Congress on 26 February 2016. I myself will not be a candidate for that position.”
“Fifa remains committed to the reform process, which is critical to reclaiming public trust. We will also continue to co-operate fully with authorities and follow the internal investigation wherever it leads,” he added.
“Football has never enjoyed greater support throughout the world, and that is something everyone associated with Fifa should be proud of.”
