Michel Platini: Ex-Uefa president loses appeal to European Court of Human Rights

Former France international Michel Platini was voted in as Uefa president in 2007

Michel Platini’s ban from football “was justified” said the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) after rejecting the ex-Uefa president’s appeal.

Platini and former Fifa counterpart Sepp Blatter were found guilty in 2015 of ethics breaches over a 2m Swiss Franc (£1.3m) “disloyal payment”.

The Frenchman was initially given an eight-year ban which was eventually reduced to four on appeal.
