Blatter To Only Face One Challenger
Prince Ali Bin Al-Hussein
And then there was One, FIFA Presidential candidate Luis Figo has joined Michael van Praag in withdrawing from the FIFA Presidential Election on May 29th.
Ex-Portugal midfielder Figo, pulled out on the same day as Van Pragg, to leave Prince Ali Bin Al-Hussein of Jordan as Blatter's only rival.
Blatter is favorite to win a fifth term as president and Figo said: "This process is anything but an election.
"This process is a plebiscite for the delivery of absolute power to one man - something I refuse to go along with."
Each of FIFA's 209 member associations have a vote in the election and Van Praag, who is president of the Dutch football federation, says he will now support Prince Ali.
The English Football Association also intend to support Prince Ali, while the Scottish FA had previously said they would back Van Praag.
