Sunil Gulati, an Allahabad-born Connecticut Indian who is also a Columbia University academic, is said to be among the candidates in the mix to succeed Blatter following the latter’s resignation after several Fifa officials were indicted for corruption by US law enforcement authorities.

Gulati had not responded to messages at the time of writing, although he said in a statement on Tuesday that Blatter’s resignation “represents an exceptional and immediate opportunity for positive change within Fifa” and commended him “for making a decision that puts Fifa and the sport we love above all other interests.”
