Musa Bility submits FIFA presidency bid

Liberia Football Association (LFA) chief Musa Bility has announced confirmation of his candidacy for FIFA’s presidential elections.

The 48-year-old revealed that his campaign team have submitted his registration in the race to replace outgoing president Sepp Blatter, who remains suspended by the organisation.

Bility’s announcement comes ahead of Monday’s deadline for candidates to submit their bids for the elections that will be held in February 2016.

“I am a very happy man,” he told BBC Sport.

“If we are to change football then we have to make sure that those who have been running FIFA for the last 20-25 years have nothing to do with it.”

“Musa’s candidacy has been officially received by FIFA,” Bility’s campaign manager Edwin Snowe added.

Bility has thrown his hat into the ring alongside former FIFA official Jerome Champagne, Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein of Jordan, former Trinidad and Tobago midfielder David Nakhid and South African businessman Tokyo Sexwale, while South Korean Chung Mong-joon confirmed his withdrawal from the race on Monday.

UEFA general secretary Gianni Infantino is also set to stand, with Michel Platini’s bid on hold during his 90-day suspension.
