After the recently reelected FIFA president, the Swiss Joseph “Sepp” Blatter, surprisingly resigned on June 3 amidst a corruption scandal that hit the supreme football organization, Twitter users started to speculate not about who might become the next leader, but what would happen if they were.
The result was the satiric hashtag #SiYoFueraPresidenteDeLaFIFA (If I were FIFA president)
Some proposed “improvements” to the game and championships:
#SiYoFueraPresidenteDeLaFIFA Días de Champions serían días de descanso a nivel mundial.

If I were FIFA president, the Champions (UEFA) days would be worldwide holidays.

#SiYoFueraPresidenteDeLaFIFA ¡MÁS APOYO A SELECCIONES MENORES!

If I were FIFA president, MORE SUPPORT TO THE MINOR NATIONAL TEAMS!
Others spoke about broadcast rights:
#SiYoFueraPresidenteDeLaFIFA prohibiría de por vida que televisa transmitiera un evento de futbol — Carlo5 Ro∂ríguez (@CarIosRdz) June 2, 2015
If I were FIFA president I would forever forbid Televisa to broadcast any football event
And some others preferred to think how they would change the past:
#SiYoFueraPresidenteDeLaFIFA Seria Gol de Yepes♥

If I were FIFA president It would have been goal by Yepes

If I were FIFA president I would repeat Brazil's World Cup with a goal kick by Mexico on the 90 minute and a yellow card for Robben
Meanwhile, more than one proposed to award players with potential:
