Jerome Champagne confirms his bid to become the next FIFA president.

Former French diplomat Jerome Champagne has confirmed his bid to become the next FIFA president.

The 55-year-old is an ex-aide of current president Sepp Blatter.

Blatter, who has been in charge since 1998, recently hinted that he could stay on to run for a fourth term after previously suggesting that he would retire ahead of next year's elections.

Champagne left FIFA in 2010 to work as a football consultant in troubled regions such as Kosovo, Palestine and Israel.
