FIFA upholds bans for Blatter, Platini

Two of football’s former top administrators have had their bans upheld, although their forced time away from the game has been reduced.

Outgoing FIFA President Sepp Blatter and former European boss Michel Platini were banned last year by FIFA’s Ethics Committee over a “disloyal payment” made from Blatter to Platini.

FIFA’s Appeals Committee 24 February upheld the ban but reduced them from eight to six years.

Both men deny wrongdoing.

Blatter has said he plans to take the matter to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
