A challenger to Sepp Blatter may emerge from Europe with Michael van Praag from Holland considering entering the contest for the FIFA presidency.

UEFA’s executive committee was on Monday discussing Van Praag, president of the Dutch Football Association, standing as a candidate against Blatter.

However, UEFA president Michel Platini is also keen to give support to Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein from Jordan.

If Van Praag and Prince Ali do both confirm they will be candidates ahead of Thursday’s deadline, it would be a surprise if both were still in the contest for the vote itself in May as they would be likely to split the vote among those associations keen on reform of FIFA.
