90 day suspension


Blatter, Platini and Valcke are suspended for 90 days by FIFA’s ethics committee. Blatter’s lawyers say he is “disappointed” the committee had not followed its own code in allowing him an opportunity to be heard.

[The suspension is based on] a misunderstanding of the actions of the attorney general in Switzerland. President Blatter looks forward to the opportunity to present evidence that will demonstrate that he did not engage in any misconduct, criminal or otherwise.

Valcke says the suspension is “farcical” and based on “based on mere semblances”:

I refuse to believe this is a political decision taken in haste in order to taint a lifelong devotee of the game or crush my candidacy for the Fifa presidency.

UEFA says it has full confidence in Platini and will not remove him from duties while the FIFA suspension is ongoing.

Fabricated, outrageous.
