Platini appeals Fifa ban at CAS

Uefa president Michel Platini on Wednesday appeal to the Court of Arbitration for sport against his six years ban from football.
Recall that 24 February Fifa dismissed appeal from Platini and Sepp Blatter against their ban from all football activity, as both pair ban was reduced from eight years to six years.
The Fifa scandal aborted the dream of Uefa President Platini to contest for the Fifa presidential election as his Secretary General Gianni Infantino, won the Fifa presidency election on last week Friday.
In a statement issued by CAS said: “In appealing to the CAS, Michel Platini seeks to annul the decisions taken by the adjudicatory chamber of the Fifa ethics committee and by the Fifa appeal committee which lead to him being declared ineligible to take part in football-related activity at national and international level for six years.”
A CAS arbitration procedure is in progress.
“First, the parties will exchange written submissions and a panel of three arbitrators will be constituted.” The panel will consider a verdict after a hearing in Lausanne. The statement said.
