Michel Platini wants new candidate to rival Sepp Blatter for Fifa role
Uefa chief Michel Platini hopes a third candidate will challenge Sepp Blatter and Jerome Champagne in next year's Fifa presidential election.
Asked who he would back for the election, Platini said: "Neither. I hope others will run.
"Another European candidate would have very little chance of winning."
Speaking to French radio station Europe 1, Platini reiterated that he would not be supporting Blatter.
Fifa's image has been tarnished recently over allegations of corruption concerning the 2018 and 2022 World Cup bidding process, with Russia and Qatar winning the right to host the respective tournaments.
"The image of Fifa is very, very, very bad so that's why I think it would be good that he [Blatter] stops, but I don't think he wants to," added Platini.
