UEFA Secretary-General Gianni Infantino vowed Tuesday to withdraw from FIFA's presidential election if Michel Platini Redskins Jonathan Allen Jersey , the UEFA president who is serving a 90-day ban from all soccer-related activities, is allowed to stand.
"Platini is my president and I've worked with him for nine years. It's clear that I have his support, otherwise I would not be running," Infantino told Italian daily Gazzetta dello Sport.
"My candidacy is not in opposition to Michel. If he is able to stand, I will withdraw. It's a simple principle of loyalty. But right now I am a candidate 100 percent and I'm moving forward, not only for Europe but for world football."
Speaking of his plans to run for world soccer's lead role Redskins Derrius Guice Jersey , Infantino acknowledged he shared "lots of points in common" with Platini in relation to "development and reforms" but that he also has his own ideas.
"I am Infantino, and Platini is Platini," he said. "It's my program. The priorities are the same, but there will be some differences."
Yet Infantino said that in principle he, as a candidate, was focused on several key -reforms Redskins Da'Ron Payne Jersey , one of which is the "indispensible" reform of world governing body FIFA.
"The reform of FIFA. It's indispensible. We need financial transparency, so that we know what money is coming in and which is going out," he said.
