Argentina-France: invited by Emmanuel Macron, Michel Platini will not go to Doha


The former UEFA boss has declined the Head of State's invitation to attend the World Cup final in Qatar between France and France.

Acquitted on July 8 by justice in his trial for corruption, but reassembled against the members of FIFA, Michel Platini declined this Friday the invitation of Emmanuel Macron to attend the final of the World Cup in Qatar on Sunday between France and Argentina, according to information from Europe 1.

The former UEFA boss probably does not want to meet the members of FIFA, whom he considers responsible for a political and judicial manipulation intended to remove him from power.

Last July, the former number 10 of the tricolor selection was acquitted in his trial for fraud.

After the verdict, Michel Platini rejoiced in a short press release to have "won a first match", while again alluding to political and judicial manipulation.

“In this case, there are culprits who did not appear during this trial.

Let them count on me, we will meet again,” he insisted.

The former player of Saint-Étienne and Juventus Turin in particular suspects the president of FIFA, Gianni Infantino, without a former right arm at UEFA from 2007 to 2016.
