In a recent interview with French newspaper Le Monde, Michel Platini has given a different outlook to Sepp Blatter.
The pair are currently undergoing a ban from all football related activities from FIFA after it was made known that Blatter paid a non-contract £1.3 million to Platini in 2011.
The illegal act led to long-serving FIFA president, Blatter losing the election and the former UEFA president resigning from his post.
“I do not know what I have done wrong,” Platini said. “Do not always believe what Blatter says. He will always tell you what you want to hear but he is an exceptional political animal.
“In the end, he tried to save his own skin. Blatter does not defend anyone else, he never defended me. He’s the most selfish person I have seen in my life. He thought he would grow old and die and be buried at FIFA.”
“He always said I would be his last scalp,” Platini claimed. “I know he was fixated on me, to the end, ever since the ‘enough is enough’ comment on May 28, 2015, even without considering the jealousy he had for the footballer I was.”
