AP Interview: Sheikh Salman urges 1 candidate in FIFA poll

PARIS (AP) FIFA presidential candidate Sheikh Salman is calling on voters to agree on a single candidate ahead of the election.

In an interview with The Associated Press on Tuesday, Sheikh Salman dismissed suggestions that winning a contested election would give him a stronger mandate to lead world soccer's governing body.

"If we go to election there will be losers and maybe sometimes you need to avoid that result," he said.
