Account to Goal.com Dec 21, 2015 11:29:13 that Sepp Blatter has confirmed his intention to appeal against his eight-year Fifa ban from all football-related activity at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
“With my lawyer, he is putting into question all of what is right and what is wrong. I will use sporting justice now to go forward. We will go immediately once again to the appeal committee to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, we will also go to the Swiss [courts]. said Blatterr
“Under Swiss law to be suspended for eight years you have to have committed something very, very important.”
The Blatter And Platini Handed 8 Year Football Bans relate to a payment of two million Swiss francs (£1.3million) made by Fifa, and authorised by Blatter, to Platini in Feburary 2011. Blatter and FIFA vice-president Platini claimed this related to work carried out by the former France captain for FIFA between 1999 and 2002, citing a “gentleman’s agreement”.
But the Ethics Committee ruled that there was “no legal basis” for the payment in a written agreement signed by both men on August 25, 1999 and added that the assertion of an oral agreement was “not convincing and rejected by the chamber”.
Sepp Blatter who will be outgoing from Fifa president said the organisation’s regulations allowed for gentleman’s agreements and pointed to the fact that his and Platini’s versions of events align despite claiming not to have been in touch with his former colleague during the investigation process as well.
“Mr Platini and myself were asked separately about this since the first day when this happened. It was in a meeting here in July in Zurich,” Blatter added. “We were separated, we couldn’t speak together and we have given the same answer.
“The only thing they should have done is to say: ‘Yes if this arrangement existed, you should have put it somewhere in the books.’
“I agree to that. But this is administrative and financial proceedings. It is nothing to do with ethics.
“These allegations I have given a gift to Platini because of this arrangement and contract. It says in the FIFA books that you can have an oral contract.
