Bin Hammam: I am not buying votes
Friday 29 April 2011
Fifa presidential challenger Mohamed Bin Hammam claims he is "well placed" in the contest against Sepp Blatter and has denied he is attempting to buy votes by increasing financial help for national associations.
Bin Hammam met the Football Association in London yesterday ahead of the election on 1 June. The FA will decide on 19 May who to back but it is no secret that many senior figures favour Bin Hammam.
