Platini: Trying to distort my image at a crucial moment for football
The President of the European football organization (UEFA) Michel Platini denied British Daily Telegraph that accuse him that he had received money for giving voice to Qatar for getting the World Cup 2022
"I am not surprised by such unfounded rumors that just trying to distort my image at a crucial moment for the future of football. Not at all am I not surprised to be honest," said Platini, who was denied on several occasions met with Mohamed Bin Hammam, who reportedly paid about five million dollars for giving voice to Qatar.
"Well of course I saw Mr. Bin Hammam. Both are members of the FIFA executive committee since 2002nd year. Theme of our conversation was my candidacy for the presidency of FIFA in the 2011th year. As for the rumors that to me former President Nicolas Sarkozy ordered for whom to vote can only say that no one tells me what to do. I am opened and only I say that I voted for Qatar, but just to expand horizons of football, "concluded Platini.
