Seoul - FIFA presidential candidate Michael van Praag has visited South Korea's soccer leaders seeking support for his challenge to Sepp Blatter.
Van Praag's visit to Seoul comes days after tension was exposed at an Asian Football Confederation election meeting between its leaders, who support Blatter, and the South Korean delegation.
Van Praag says "I feel that the Korean FA has a very clear vision on the future of FIFA and that many of our ideas truly match."
The Dutch official was joined by Guus Hiddink, who coached South Korea to the 2002 World Cup semifinals.
Blatter is expected to extend his 17-year presidential reign in the May 29 election. He currently has three opponents: Van Praag, Prince Ali bin al-Hussein of Jordan and Luis Figo.
