Platini confirms he won’t battle Blatter for FIFA presidency
The 59-year-old confirmed this to UEFA delegates, who are in Monaco for Thursday’s draws for the group stages of the Champions League competition.
“It was a very positive message – he said he would like to continue as Uefa president and I am pleased that it means that this time there will be no battle between Fifa and Uefa,” The European FIFA executive committee member Michel D’Hooghe said.
Platini had previously called for a “breath of fresh air” at the top of the world football governing body.
