MOSCOW, July 31 /TASS/. FIFA sees no conflict of interests in the nomination of the Russian Sport Minister Vitaly Mutko to the post of president of the Russian Football Union (RFU), the FIFA press service told TASS on Friday adding the nomination did not violate any of the FIFA rules.

FIFA said the combination of two posts by Mutko was unlikely to cause any serious conflict of interests.

According to FIFA, difficulties could arise only in case of indirect interference in the organization’s affairs or violation of the FIFA ethical code.

Mutko’s only rival, Vice-Speaker of the Russian State Duma Igor Lebedev, withdrew from the race earlier on Friday leaving the Russian sport minister as the only candidate. Mutko had been nominated by 45 organizations, members of the Russian Football Union (RFU).

The Russian Football Union will elect a new president at an extraordinary conference on September 2.

Mutko headed the RFU from 2005 to 2009.
