Gianni Infantino insisted Sunday that FIFA's reform package would close the door on a chapter of pain at world football's governing body and usher in an era of joy.The package will limit Infantino's powers compared to those formerly enjoyed by the disgraced Sepp Blatter, and there will be a 12-year term limit for all top officials, whose earnings will be fully disclosed.The all-powerful executive committee will be renamed a FIFA council and football's multibillion-dollar business activities will be run separately from football politics.Having admitted there may be more skeletons in FIFA's cupboard he conversely claimed the future was bright when asked if there was more pain for FIFA to come.Infantino, he insisted, had been part of a fairly functioning UEFA, which should not be mistaken for its senior global partner FIFA.
