Tennis great Billie Jean King has challenged FIFA and new president Gianni Infantino to hire more women for senior jobs.King said in a keynote speech at FIFA headquarters Monday that the world soccer body has a chance to transform itself after years of corruption scandals.FIFA has no women in top management jobs with responsibility for soccer or commercial issues after more than 17 years led by former president Sepp Blatter.Infantino was elected 10 days ago, hours after FIFA members also voted through a reform package that commits them to promote women's soccer.That proportion of 17 percent falls short of the 30 percent target set last year by women's soccer activists for the FIFA reforms steering group, which included Infantino.
