"In appealing to the CAS, Michel Platini seeks to annul the decisions taken by the Adjudicatory Chamber of the FIFA Ethics Committee and by the FIFA Appeal Committee which lead to him being declared ineligible to take part in football-related activity at national and international level for six years," CAS said in a statement.
On February, FIFA’s appeal committee had rejected suspended football chiefs Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini’s bids to have their eight-year bans from the sport quashed. However, their suspensions were reduced to six years.
They were suspended in December over a $2 million “disloyal payment” to Platini in 2011.
After Platini`s suspension UEFA is without a president and as of Friday without a general-secretary as Gianni Infantino won the FIFA presidential election.
If the CAS rejects Platini`s appeal, a presidential election is expected at UEFA.
