Frankfurt/Main (SID) - Michel Platini has taken the criticism-related FIFA boss Joseph Blatter in protection. "It many accusations at Blatter are addressed, which were unfair and inaccurate." Perhaps, because some people felt that as President he would be responsible for everything what happens in the FIFA. But if there have been cases of corruption, then certainly not in direct connection with Blatter. "You can criticize how manages Blatter the FIFA, but he is not corrupt very safely", the President said the European soccer Union (UEFA) in an interview with the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung about the Swiss. "Blatter is not the devil, and he is also no Angel," the Frenchman added to.
Platini is convinced that Blatter is still the right man, to combat the bad image of the world football association. "He has promised me to clean the FIFA." "If he wants to remain in the history, he must clean the FIFA", said Platini. The former world-class player, who once worked as a consultant of Blatters hopes that FIFA able is to solve its problems internally. "I think the change from the inside by FIFA must come, and not from outside." "We have bodies that are responsible for this", so the 56-Jahrige who can imagine one day to succeed Blatter as FIFA President. He will impose a but not for this post.
"I am re-elected but just as UEFA President." There is still much time, until this decision must be taken. I feel very well in the UEFA. Why should I fight for a new post, if it makes me fun, continuing the old. "I urge anyone from his Office," said Platini, who eloquently but added: "If Blatter says he can hear up, then that is something else." And he has announced it will be his last mandate. If it is so far, we will see. If suddenly very, very, very, very great trouble arose, I would have to decide then. "But I am assuming that the question arises only in four years."
