Platini to appeal ‘masquerade’ FIFA ban

French football legend Michel Platini said on Monday he will go to sports and civil courts in a bid to overturn an eight year ban ordered by FIFA.

Platini said in a statement sent to AFP that the FIFA decision was a “masquerade” intended to “dirty” his name.

“Parallel to going to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, I am determined to apply to, at the right time, civil courts to obtain damages for all the prejudice I have suffered over very long weeks,” Platini said.
