Former Manchester United chief David Gill is still considering standing for the FIFA vice-presidency.

The Daily Mail says Gill, the English football administrator most likely to achieve high office in Nyon or Zurich, is undecided whether to stand as the England representative for election to the FIFA vice-presidency being vacated by Northern Ireland’s Jim Boyce in 2015.

Gill has major reservations about any involvement with FIFA while Sepp Blatter is at the helm. The full UEFA electorate will have a vote on the British place for the first time with Scotland (Campbell Ogilvie) and Wales (Trefor Lloyd Hughes) also putting up candidates.
