Platini concerned for game’s future

Platini is concerned that football has major problems which threaten to ruin the game for fans.

“Clubs have to live within their means. But we are facing huge problems. Perhaps I am being alarmist, but we have to face up to match-fixing, corruption, illegal betting, violence on the pitch, racism and hooliganism.

“Of course there are many good qualities and values about football, but we ignore the problems at our peril.”
