Ginola’s Fifa president campaign isn’t going quite to plan…
David Ginola has raised just £5,506 in his first week with the former Tottenham attacker needing £2.3m to fund his campaign, reports the Guardian.
Ginola announced last week that he was to challenge Sepp Blatter as Fifa president with the 47-year-old being paid £250,000 by a betting firm to stand against Blatter.
Yesterday the Premier League legend discussed his desire to have combined men and women’s World Cup – providing an insight into how he would like to change the way football is viewed across the globe.
In order to be eligible for the election, Ginola needs the support of five football associations and must prove that he has been active in football in two of the last five years.
However, the former France international needs £2.3m to fund his campaign – yet, as of Tuesday afternoon, has raised just 0.27% of this figure so far with £5,506, as reported by the Guardian.
It seems Ginola’s campaign for the title of Fifa President might not be as straightforward as hoped…
