FIFA presidential contender Chung Mong-joon is calling for the establishment of an emergency task force to run world soccer during its leadership crisis.
President Sepp Blatter is under criminal investigation, while general secretary Jerome Valcke is suspended from work and being investigated by the FIFA ethics committee.
Chung, a former FIFA vice president under Blatter, says the organization is in ''total meltdown.''
In a statement, the South Korean says regional confederations should push FIFA ''to set up an emergency task force that will enable FIFA secretariat to function without interruption.''
Among Chung's potential rivals in February's election is UEFA President Michel Platini, who has been questioned as a witness over a payment from FIFA - the reason Blatter was interrogated on Friday by Swiss authorities.
Blatter and Platini deny wrongdoing.
