GENEVA – UEFA leaders are meeting to decide whether to continue backing Michel Platini, with some not yet satisfied by his explanation for a payment that led to his 90-day FIFA suspension.
The UEFA president received 2 million Swiss francs (about $2 million) from FIFA in 2011 which, Platini says, was unpaid additional salary from his job as Sepp Blatter's adviser between 1998 and 2002.
Arriving at Geneva airport, executive committee member Allan Hansen says he expects "to get some further information because I didn't so far."
Platini hasn't produced a written contract to show the money was owed to him. Because of his ban, he is not attending Thursday's meeting at UEFA headquarters.
Romanian federation president Razvan Burleanu says "we need more information, more details."
