Bin Hammam to reveal FIFA presidency intentions

Asian football chief Mohamed Bin Hammam will announce on Friday whether he will challenge Sepp Blatter for the FIFA presidency.

The 61-year-old Qatari has been hinting for the last two months that he may stand and will hold a news conference at the headquarters of the Asian Football Confederation in Kuala Lumpur on Friday.

Bin Hammam said on his Twitter account: "I will hold a press conference on Friday, March 18, at AFC House. I will clarify my position regarding the FIFA presidency elections, which take place in June 2011."

The FIFA presidential election is due to take place in Zurich on June 1.
