The Danish football association DBU has confirmed it will lay its support at the feet of Gianni Infantino to succeed Sepp Blatter as the new president of the world football governing body FIFA later this month.

DBU head Jesper Møller said the Swiss secretary general of the European football association UEFA was the best candidate in terms of representing core values in Denmark and the Nordic countries.

“I’ve been charged by the DBU board to support Infantino,” Møller told DR Nyheder. “With the obvious condition that we continue to monitor the development ahead of the vote.”

“We have considered everything and that’s why, as it stands, I have the authority to vote for him. We have evaluated him based on his views and values.”
