France: 'A lot of noise for nothing' - Platini released by police after questioning on Qatar WC

Франция, Nanterre
Invalid date · Опубликовано

Former UEFA President Michel Platini was released by police authorities after being questioned in a corruption probe related to FIFA's decision to award the 2022 World Cup to Qatar, in Nanterre, near Paris on Tuesday.

Speaking outside the Anti-Corruption Office of the Judicial Police, Platini's lawyer William Bourdon said the questioning was "a lot of noise for nothing."

"We don't consider Michel Platini as guilty of anything -- nor yesterday, nor today, nor tomorrow. This is a closed case for us. The investigators wanted to hear him for purely technical questions," he added.

Platini told journalists he was questioned on a wide range of topics, including "the EURO 2016, on the 2018 World Cup in Russia, on [the 2020 World Cup in] Qatar, on PSG, on FIFA..."

"There were a lot of topics. So I peacefully answered to all of this. Not that I knew why I was there in the first place. I am peaceful that this is an old story I already answered," he said.

Tuesday's arrest was reportedly made in relation to a meeting Platini attended alongside former French President Nicolas Sarkozy and Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, the current emir of Qatar, just a month before FIFA was due to vote on both the 2018 and 2022 World Cup hosting rights.

Platini is serving a four-year suspension from football, beginning in 2015, over a payment he received from FIFA.
