• FIFA rejects Blatter, Platini appeals against suspension


    ZURICH: A FIFA appeal committee on Wednesday rejected a bid by long-time president Sepp Blatter and UEFA chief Michel Platini to overturn their 90-day suspensions while Swiss police pursue a criminal investigation. The committee said it had “rejected in full” the appeals made by Blatter and Platini. The suspension has been a severe blow to Platini’s hopes of winning a FIFA presidential election in Zurich on February 26 when Blatter stands down after 17 years in the post.
