The Billionaire and former head of the South Korean Football Association Mong-joon is set to run for the Fifa presidency against European FA boss Michel Platini.

Speaking to BBC’s World Football programme earlier today, the 63-year-old said he would change systems at the football world governing body.

“If I get voted, my job is not to enjoy the luxury of the office. My job is to change it,” Mong-joon, a majority shareholder of Hyundai Motors with an estimated US$1.2 billion fortune, said.

He lashed out at his contender, saying Mr Platini would find it difficult to carry out meaningful reforms.

“It will be very difficult for Platini to have meaningful reforms; Mr Platini is a product of the current system and enjoys institutional support from the current structure of FIFA”, Mong-joon said.
