UEFA to delay presidential election

Platini has appealed to Fifa’s appeals committee

Uefa has confirmed that it will not hold an election to replace Michel Platini as its president until the appeals process against Platini’s eight-year ban has been fully exhausted.

Platini, who was banned along with Fifa president Sepp Blatter last month over a £1.3m payment he received from Fifa in 2011, has appealed to Fifa’s appeals committee and is expected to go all the way to the court of arbitration for sport if this fails.

“The Uefa executive committee decided there will be no UEFA presidential election scheduled until the sports justice appeal bodies, including potentially the Court of Arbitration for Sport, have taken a decision regarding Michel Platini’s suspension,” read a statement from Uefa.

“The Uefa executive committee and Uefa’s national associations would like to state that we have taken note of the decision of the Fifa ethics committee to suspend the Uefa president, Michel Platini. We hope his name is cleared and that he can return to the European football family as quickly as possible.”

Meanwhile, Uefa also announced that goalline technology will be used at Euro 2016 and in the knockout stages of the Champions League from next season after the executive committee of European football's governing body voted in favour of the change.
