Platini voices fears over future

UEFA president Michel Platini has said that he is worried for the future of football with the current state of the game's finances.

With debt an increasing problem across Europe, and UEFA's financial fair play rules designed to curb reckless spending by top clubs set to be introduced this season, Platini claimed he was ''afraid for the future of football'' because of clubs going bankrupt and running up bills.

He said in a media briefing in Monaco: "Football seems to be going pear-shaped. I fear for the future of professional football. There are a lot of red lights flashing at the moment."

The strikes by players in Spain and Italy over unpaid wages and tax issues have also worried the UEFA president, who added that he was ''not comfortable'' with what has been happening in two of Europe's wealthiest leagues.
