Platini takes ban case to CAS….

Michel Platini has announced he will appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) against his ban from football. Suspended UEFA boss Michel Platini and outgoing FIFA president Sepp Blatter had their bans from all football-related activities upheld at a hearing last week. But the suspensions were reduced from eight to six years by FIFA’s appeals committee. Both were found guilty of breaches surrounding a $2m disloyal payment to Platini. A statement released by the Court of Arbitration in the last few minutes read: “In appealing to the CAS, Michel Platini seeks to annul the decisions taken by the Adjudicatory Chamber of the FIFA Ethics Committee and by the FIFA Appeal Committee which lead to him being declared ineligible to take part in football-related activity at national and international level for six years. “A CAS arbitration procedure is (now) in progress.”
