Michel Platini accuses Sepp Blatter over Fifa role

Michel Platini has criticised the Fifa president, Sepp Blatter, saying the Swiss has stopped serving the cause of football.

“Sepp is not the president of Fifa anymore. He is Fifa,” the Uefa president, Platini, whose book Let’s Talk About Football was released this week, told the French sports daily L’Equipe.

“Platini, Pelé, Blatter, [the former Fifa president João] Havelange must yield to the interests of football. One must not use football, but serve football.”

Platini, 59, has no regrets for not running against Blatter who is likely to secure a fifth term at next year’s elections. “It was not the time. I do not regret anything. One day maybe. We will see,” he said.

The former France great, who led Les Bleus to their Euro 1984 title, was re-elected as Uefa’s president in 2011.
