MOSCOW, June 16. /TASS/. Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko said on Tuesday it was highly possible that his candidacy would be submitted for the post of the Russian Football Union (RFU).
"I do not want to get so far ahead, but it is highly possible," Mutko told a news conference on Tuesday, when asked whether he would take the helm of the Russian governing body of football.
Former RFU President Nikolay Tolstykh, who headed the organization since September of 2012, laid down his mandate after the organization’s Executive Committee voted at its session on May 31 in favor of his early dismissal. Nikita Simonyan is currently the acting RFU president until the next elections are scheduled and held, most likely in September.
