Ginola to challenge Blatter?

He is expected to confirm talking on Blatter at a press conference. 

Ginola has until January 29 to show Fifa he has the support of five national associations, and must also prove he has played an "active role" working inside football for two of the last five years.

The Fifa election is at the governing body's congress in May, when Blatter will be seeking a fifth, four-year term as president.

There are three other candidates that have been linked to challenging Blatter, they are: Fifa Vice President Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein of Jordan, former Fifa official Jerome Champagne, and former Chile football leader Harold Mayne-Nicholls.

But the trio has yet to show it has the backing of five associations.
