Luis Figo launches his manifesto for Fifa presidency

Portuguese great Luis Figo plans to expand the World Cup format and return money to individual football associations as he launches his Fifa presidency manifesto at Wembley.

The former Barcelona, Real Madrid and Inter Milan star, 42, says unrest he witnessed at the World Cup in Brazil and the furore surrounding Michael Garcia's report into allegations of corruption at Fifa led him to stand.

Figo, who won 127 caps with Portugal, says he is "not worried" about the election turning "nasty" and says he is just focused on convincing people that he is the right man to bring a positive change to the world game.
