European Club Association want FIFA to reform

The European Club Association, led by Karl-Heinz Rumenigge, believe football's world governing body, FIFA, needs a complete overhaul.

Recent allegations of bribery have shaken newly-elected president Sepp Blatter and his team at FIFA and after today's presidency election in Switzerland, Bayern Munich chief Rumenigge says there needs to be changes.

"The recent happenings have once more proven that FIFA needs a change in its whole structure. As chairman of the European Club Association, I request FIFA to immediately introduce democratic and transparent structures and procedures," he said.

"European clubs will no longer accept that they do not participate in the decision-making when it comes to club related matters.

"We will closely follow FIFA's development in this respect in the future and take appropriate measures, if there is no improvement."
