Uefa calls for 12-year limit for Fifa president
Switzerland (AP) - European football leaders want to let the next Fédération Internationale de Football Association (Fifa) president have 12 years in office - four years more than Fifa's top anti-corruption adviser recommends.
Union of European Football Associations' (Uefa) 53 member nations proposed on Thursday that football's world governing body should follow the International Olympic Committee (IOC). It imposed a 12-year presidential limit in reforms after the Salt Lake City bidding scandal.
"It makes some sense," Uefa general secretary Gianni Infantino told reporters. "If the IOC has adopted such a rule for their president - following a situation you all know - this must have had some reasons, and some good reasons as well."
Current Fifa president Sepp Blatter will have completed 17 years in office when his mandate ends in 2015.
