Blatter says Platini deal was ‘gentleman’s agreement’


LAUSANNE: Suspended FIFA president Sepp Blatter claimed on Friday (Saturday in Manila) that the two million dollar (1.8 million euros) payment he made to UEFA president Michel Platini was a “gentleman’s agreement.” “It was a contract I had with Platini, a gentleman’s agreement,” said the 79-year-old in an interview with Swiss media RROTV. Blatter and Platini, 60, have both been suspended for 90 days by FIFA’s ethics committee as Swiss authorities conduct a criminal investigation into corruption allegations at the scandal-tainted world football governing body.
