Fifa: Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini get eight-year bans

Fifa: Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini get eight-year bans

Both men continue to deny wrongdoing and intend to appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas).

 

Swiss Blatter and 60-year-old Frenchman Platini have also been fined £33,700 ($40,000) and £54,000 ($80,000) respectively.

 

Fifa boss since 1998, Blatter had already announced he was quitting with a presidential election in February.

 

Platini was tipped as a future leader of football's world governing body and is a three-time European Footballer of the Year.

 

He is also a former captain of France and has been in charge of Uefa - European football's governing body - since 2007.

 

Fifa president Sepp Blatter and Uefa boss Michel Platini have been suspended for eight years from all football-related activities following an ethics investigation.

 

They were found guilty of breaches surrounding a £1.3m ($2m) "disloyal payment" made to Platini in 2011.

 

The Fifa ethics committee found Blatter and Platini had demonstrated an "abusive execution" of their positions.

 

"I will fight for me and for Fifa," Blatter, 79, said at a news conference.

 

Platini said the decision was a "masquerade" intended to "dirty" his name.

QUESTION?

Should Dilshan have continued until Cricket World Cup 2019?

Yes No
THE DAY'S QUOTE

“That was pathetic. No excuse at all. The whole team is responsible. Whoever the captain is, we have to back him and try and support him. The captain has to do so many other stuff. All the 11 guys must back him and support him.” “We have addressed the issue of finishing off the overs on time in the past as well, but it cropped up again. It’s so unfortunate to see Upul going out as he is a crucial player in our set up. He batted well against South Africa and it’s so unfortunate. This can’t happen again,” - Angelo Mathews

FEEDBACK/COMMENTS

Cricket is a game of fine margins and Mathews is set to be a modern great. Hang in their Angie, this team can achieve something on this tour. Thirimane and the youngsters form was a real positive. Prasad was missed. Chameera should be persisted with. If Bairstow was our early outcome could have been very different.
