Platini’s lawyer Thibaud d’Ales described FIFA’s life ban demand as a “scandal” and “excessive”.
D’Ales mentioned that the maximum sanction was asked for when the fifa 16 coins ethics committee investigations unit submitted its final case report.
“The overreaching in the request definitely convinces us of this commission’s total lack of credibility,” D’Ales stated. “There is just not a single tangible element in this case that could confirm the suspicions.”
Blatter’s representatives refused to comment on whether or not precisely the same request has been made against the Swiss official.
