FORMER UEFA PRESIDENT MICHEL PLATINI IS BEING QUESTIONED BY FRENCH ANTI-CORRUPTION INVESTIGATORS OVER THE AWARDING OF THE 2022 WORLD CUP TO QATAR

Written by on June 18, 2019

Platini, 63, was head of European football’s governing body until being banned in 2015 for ethics breaches.

The former France midfielder and three-time Ballon d’Or winner has always denied any wrongdoing.

Qatar beat bids from USA, Australia, South Korea and Japan in 2010.

Platini’s eight-year ban was later reduced to four on appeal and will expire in October 2019.
