Sexwale a long shot for FIFA presidency

26 November 2015, 18:24

Cape Town - South African businessman Tokyo Sexwale is the least likely of all of the short-listed candidates to be named the next FIFA president when elections take place in February 2016.

There are five, potentially six, candidates in the running with Michel Platini's current FIFA suspension currently hampering his campaign. 

But that suspension might be lifted before the election, which would allow the Frenchman to stand. 

However, it might not matter, as South African bookmakers Sportingbet.co.za have Prince Ali Al-Hussein as the favourite to succeed Sepp Blatter at 5/6 while Salman Al Khalifa of Bahrain is second favourite at 3/1. 

Sexwale, meanwhile, can be backed at a distant 12/1. 

Next FIFA president odds:

Prince Ali Al-Hussein - 5/6

Salman Al Khalifa - 3/1

Gianni Infantino - 6/1

Michel Platini - 8/1

Tokyo Sexwale, Jerome Champagne - 12/1
