Various US media outlets said Allahabad-born Gulati, 55, who has played a key role in the development of soccer in the United States in the past few decades, could be a potentially strong contender to replace Blatter, should the US have an interest in the position of FIFA chief.

"Gulati, 55, will be considered a candidate to replace Blatter should the American have interest in the position," NBC Sports said.

Detroit Free Press Journal said Gulati is in a strong position to gain support within the CONCACAF confederation that governs soccer in America and the Caribbean.
