Grindel elected president of German Football Federation

omgReinhard Grindel was on Friday elected unopposed as the 12th President of the German Football Federation – DFB.

The 54-year-old is a former TV journalists-turned-politician and was a member of parliament for German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s CDU party.

He became treasurer of the DFB in 2013, but remains a largely unknown figure to German football fans.

Grindel succeeds Wolfgang Niersbach, who resigned in November amid allegations of financial impropriety in Germany’s successful 2006 World Cup bid.
