UEFA presidential candidate Michael van Praag has released his manifesto ahead of the election campaign.
The head of the Royal Dutch Football Association was confirmed as a runner for the role last month, having previously pulled out of the race to become FIFA president.
And now, with the vote just over a month away on September 14, Van Praag has made his manifesto public.
The document, published on his website, outlines three key areas he hopes to tackle – connection, football development, and UEFA back to basics – while opposing plans for a European Super League, detailing Financial Fair Play 2.0 and calling for “unity” throughout.

“I am utterly motivated to take European football onwards. And the task is urgent,” Van Praag states.
“Although day-to-day matters are being dealt with effectively, UEFA has been virtually standing still for 10 months, and counting.
“There are a number of important issues to be dealt with which have not been addressed at all in that time.”
