    UEFA General Secretary Gianni Infantino said that all 54 UEFA members "support Platini's rights to a fair process and opportunity to clear his name."

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Members of the UEFA Executive Committee urged FIFA's Ethics Committee on Thursday to make the final decision on Michel Platini case by mid-November in order to ensure timely FIFA president elections in February, UEFA General Secretary Gianni Infantino said Thursday.

    Infantino stressed that all 54 UEFA members "support Platini's rights to a fair process and opportunity to clear his name."

    60-year-old Platini, who is a potential candidate for FIFA president, was suspended for 90 days by FIFA's Ethics Committee last week as part of a FIFA investigation into fraud and corruption among its leaders.
