MEXICO CITY, May 14. /TASS/. The congress of the international football federation FIFA in Mexico City has shown that Gianni Infantino is the organization’s indisputable leader, the general director of the Russia-2018 organizing committee, Aleksey Sorokin, has told the media.
The 66th FIFA congress in Mexico City was Infantino’s first in his new capacity of FIFA leader.
"The congress was very indicative. It is pretty clear that FIFA now has a new leader, a true leader. There’s been much talk about football. FIFA’s return to football and football’s return to FIFA was the congress’s key theme. Over his first 80 days in office Infantino has achieved a great deal. To a large extent the previous congress’s plans have been implemented, in particular, those concerning the organization’s reform," Sorokin said.
