Gianni Infantino is the no. 1 in football, elected as FIFA President during the Extraordinary Congress of 2016, after being UEFA Secretary General from 2009.
In his first year heading FIFA he wanted the “players” alongside him, opening the doors of football to instant replays for referees with testing of the VAR and its use planned for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
The 2018 World Cup will be the first to see him present football’s most important trophy. Before this he is looking forward to the successful confirmation of the Club World Cup (in February), a competition which will be held every four years and will take the place of the Confederation Cup.
