Michel Platini Plotting Return

Recommended Posts

Tosser.

Michel Platini is plotting a return to football but Swiss authorities have refuted his claims he has been cleared of criminal wrongdoing.

The Frenchman was banned from all football-related activities for eight years, later reduced to four years by The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), over a two million Swiss francs (£1.5m) payment FIFA made to him in 2011, with former chief Sepp Blatter's approval, for work done a decade earlier.

FIFA's ethics committee said the payment, made at a time when Blatter was seeking re-election, lacked transparency and presented conflicts of interest. Both men denied wrongdoing.

A criminal investigation was opened against Platini, but the former France captain said on Saturday he had been told by the Swiss authorities that had now been closed.
