UEFA sets date for presidential vote….

Michel Platini

UEFA says it will elect a new president on 14 September, following Michel Platini’s resignation after nine years in charge. The Frenchman, 60, quit on 9 May after failing to overturn his ban from all football activities. Platini was found guilty of ethics breaches over a 2m Swiss Franc payment he received from FIFA. Possible replacements include Slovenian federation president Aleksander Ceferin and UEFA vice-presidents Angel Maria Villar and Michael van Praag. The deadline for contenders to register is 20 July.
