Brazil soccer legend and former Japan national team coach Zico told Kyodo News in an exclusive interview Monday that he believes his knowledge and experience of the game make him the best man to clean up FIFA.

Currently coaching FC Goa in the Indian Super League, the 62-year-old Zico is making a late run at soccer's top job and says that if his record is put up against any of the other FIFA presidential candidates, he prevails every time.

"I dare any candidate of FIFA to come and present a curriculum such as mine," Zico, who scored 52 goals for Brazil, told Kyodo News from India.
