Platini re-elected UEFA President

posted in: News | 0

Michel Platini has been re-elected as UEFA president for a third four-year term.

Platini was unopposed in the election and will continue his work in the top job, which he first took over in 2007.

He also retains his FIFA vice-presidency for four more years, Sky Sports reports.

The former France superstar and Ballon d’Or winner opted last year not to stand against Sepp Blatter in the forthcoming FIFA presidential election which takes place May 29.

Platini has made it clear he does not support Blatter standing for a fifth term but he used his acceptance speech to insist that UEFA had “love and respect” for FIFA.

“This means more to me than you can possibly imagine,” Platini told the UEFA Congress in Vienna.

“I know I can count on you, and you know that you can count on me.

“This allows me to continue for another four years. I do want to say that we love FIFA deeply, and it’s precisely because we love and respect FIFA that we want it to be perfect.
