Football Ban: Swiss Supreme Court Rejects Platini’s Appeal
Switzerland’s Supreme Court has rejected former UEFA president, Michel Platini’s bid to overturn his four-year ban from the sport over ethics violations.
The court confirmed a Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) ruling in 2016 that upheld Platini’s ban.
The ruling stems from a $2.08million payment the French football legend received from FIFA in 2011.
Platini, who has denied wrongdoing, was banned along with Sepp Blatter, the former FIFA president who approved the payment.
