UEFA expresses ‘full confidence’ in Michel Platini

Posted by

Michel Platini is being given the full support of UEFA after his suspension by world football governing body FIFA.

UEFA’s executive committee says it has “full confidence” in its president, and “stands fully behind him”.

He has been handed a 90-day suspension, amid an investigation over a so-called “disloyal payment” he received from FIFA president Sepp Blatter, who has also been banned.
