Too bad about Platini

It's too bad that Platini, who was widely seen as a promising candidate to succeed Fifa president Blatter, must also leave the field, the liberal daily Mladá fronta Dnes laments: "Platini pushed through quite a few things while heading Uefa. In the Champions League, for example, representatives of smaller countries also stood better chances under his leadership. As with Blatter, Fifa's Ethics Commission sentenced him to an eight year ban. In Platini's case that comes as a shock. Although not an ideal candidate to head Fifa, he had certainly fulfilled the basic requirements until now. He is respected both as a football player and as a person. He would have been acceptable to more or less everyone concerned. The list of remaining candidates leaves us with little cause for joy."
