Sepp Blatter, the FIFA president (left) and Prince Ali bin Al Hussein, Jordan FA president, discussed about Asian football when they met in Zurich recently.
Prince Ali, who is also the West Asia Football Federation president, discussed and exchanged football matters with Blatter specifically related to Jordan and Asia.
He expressed his gratitude for FIFA’s support to develop and strengthen football in Jordan and the Asian region.
“I’m looking forward to working together with President Blatter, football officials in Asia and the rest of the world for the benefit of the sport,” said Prince Ali.
He added: “There’s a lot of room for mutual cooperation in the world of football that we need to capitalize on.”
Prince Ali had in October announced his candidacy for the FIFA Vice President’s post representing Asia. The election will be held on January 6th, 2011 by the Asian Football Confederation in Doha, Qatar.
It is his hope to help bring change in representing Asia within FIFA with the objective of rejuvenating FIFA’s Asian representation.
“I want to reach out to meet the aspirations of the millions of young sports fans in the region who want to see Asian players take their rightful place on the world stage,” he expressed.
