Michel Platini, former UEFA President
Former UEFA President, Michel Platini has requested that the Court for Arbitration of Sport (CAS) explain the reason why it decided to ban him for four years from all activities relating to football.
Originally banned for eight years, Platini took action, got his ban reduced to six on appeal,only to further go to court , which in May
cut the ban to four.
But Platini’s lawyers insist they still have not been told why the decision was made.
In a letter addressed to CAS, the former French footballer’s lawyers demanded an explanation “in as brief a time as possible” and branded CAS’s behaviour “unacceptable”.
Platini got sentenced over a 1.8 million euros (2 million Swiss francs, $2 million) payment made to him by Sepp Blatter in 2011.
