Beckenbauer joins Platini on FIFA executive

DUESSELDORF, Jan 26 (Reuters) - Franz Beckenbauer became the second high-profile former footballer to be elected to high office on Friday when he was voted onto the executive committee of FIFA, world soccer's governing body.

Beckenbauer, 61, was voted into a vacant UEFA seat on the committee by acclamation of the 52 member associations at the UEFA Congress.

An hour earlier, Michel Platini, like Beckenbauer one of the greatest players of all time, was elected as the new president of UEFA when he beat the incumbent Lennart Johansson 27-23 votes in a straight contest.

Platini was already an ordinary member of the FIFA executive but by winning the UEFA presidency, he becomes a FIFA vice-president.

Johansson, in contrast, loses his seat on the FIFA executive that he has occupied since he became UEFA president in 1990.

Six seats had become vacant on the UEFA executive committee and a separate ballot for those positions saw Icelandic FA president Eggert Magnusson, the new chairman of West Ham United, voted off.

Angel Maria Villar Llona of Spain, Senes Erzik of Turkey and Joseph Mifsud of Malta were all re-elected. Mircea Sandu of Romania, Gilberto Madail of Portugal and Grigoriy Surkis of Ukraine were also elected to the committee.

Giangiorgio Spiess of Switzerland was not re-elected while Rakhat Aliyev of Kazakhstan and Tomas Gea of Andorra failed in their attempts to get on to the executive body.
