By iSportconnect | September 12, 2016
The FIFA Ethics Committee has confirmed that Michel Platini will be attending the UEFA congress in Athens, where European football’s governing body will appoint a new President.
The former UEFA President and FIFA Presidential candidate will be allowed to address the 12th Extraordinary UEFA Congress in Athens on 14 September.
A request for Mr. Platini’s attendance had been recently made by UEFA and in a statement they said they “welcomed this decision.”
Platini was banned from football for breaching ethics rules over a £1.3m “disloyal payment” involving former FIFA President Sepp Blatter.
