Football: Prince Ali worried Fifa presidential election may not be fair

LONDON (AFP) - Fifa presidential candidate Prince Ali Al Hussein on Monday expressed fears that horse-trading over the allocation of places at the 2018 World Cup could influence the election.

Football's governing body's executive committee will decide on the distribution of World Cup places by confederation on May 30, a day after Ali, Michel van Praag and Luis Figo go up against incumbent Sepp Blatter in the Fifa presidential election.

Michel Platini, president of European governing body Uefa, has suggested that Blatter will make promises about World Cup slots while campaigning and Ali is also concerned about the order of events.
