Platini frustrated over law changes

UEFA president Michel Platini has expressed disappointment that Sepp Blatter did not consult anyone in FIFA's executive committee before deciding to introduce goal-line technology.

The International Football Association Board (IFAB), which was founded in 1886, meets twice a year to determine any changes to the laws of the game. The FAs of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland each carry one vote while Blatter, as FIFA president, carries four.

Last month, the IFAB officially approved the use of goal-line technology and Platini, who has dismissed such developments as "PlayStation football", said he was unhappy that it was effectively a unilateral decision.

"When you talk about technology, FIFA didn't decide on goal-line technology - the president did," Platini said. "No one in the executive committee was consulted, nor was anyone in any other FIFA committees invited to give their views. It was just the FIFA president along with IFAB. He's in charge and it's up to him."

He added: "I respect the tradition and the fact that the four British associations for 125 years have always taken a traditional decision. I think the four votes for the British are okay - it's the four votes for FIFA I don't understand.

"The president has the four votes and he decides what he wants. He never speaks about the IFAB in the executive committee. The four votes of Blatter are not correct. Many people are against the four votes of the British - they say Wales and Northern Ireland are not very important, but I don't agree with them.

"If the executive committee or the Congress had decided on the technology, I would accept [it] more because it's a democratic decision. Blatter never discussed it with the executive committee. He has four votes and he decides."
