Platini rules out FIFA role

FIFA vice-president Michel Platini insists there is "no possibility'' he will run for the presidency of the world football's governing body after the election next week was thrown into chaos by bribery allegations.

• Warner: FIFA 'tsunami' on way
• FIFA to investigate Blatter
• Bin Hammam claims a conspiracy
• Blatter: No joy in rival's plight

Former France international Platini said he would prefer to remain head of UEFA, Europe's governing body, for his full four-year term.

Current FIFA president Sepp Blatter will appear at a FIFA ethics committee hearing on Sunday to answer a complaint made by his rival for the presidency Mohamed Bin Hammam, who faces a separate charge of bribery along with one of the organisation's vice-presidents Jack Warner.

With the inquiry involving so many high-profile figures in the sport's world governing body, there have been calls for Wednesday's presidential vote to be cancelled.

Platini hopes the matter is rectified in time for the election to take place as planned, and was quick to distance himself from reports linking him with FIFA's top job.

"I have just been voted in for four years at UEFA and there is just no possibility (of going to FIFA),'' Platini told BBC Sport.

"If there is an election then a new president will be elected for four years. If there is no election then it will be complicated, but I don't know what will happen.''

Blatter admitted he also did not know what would happen if both presidential candidates were suspended tomorrow and that this was a "strange moment'' for the governing body.

"I am concerned because I am vice-president,'' he added. "The governing body of football has to be clean, has to be good, has to think about what the values of football are and things like that.

"We know perhaps in the big assemblies there are not so clean people, like with journalists, football players, in music, politicians.

"Let's go to the executive committee, the disciplinary committee, let the people have some evidence and take a decision after that.''

Warner and Bin Hammam face lengthy bans should the corruption allegations made by fellow executive committee member Chuck Blazer be proven.

Blazer claims that the violations of FIFA's code of ethics occurred during a meeting organised by Bin Hammam and Warner for Caribbean Football Union (CFU) associations in Trinidad two weeks ago.

Bin Hammam made a complaint on Thursday that Blatter knew about the alleged cash payments in the Caribbean and under their code, the ethics committee had to summon Blatter to answer that charge.
