Michel Platini has backed Sepp Blatter’s resignation as FIFA president, describing it as “the right decision”.

Blatter confirmed the news on Tuesday, with an Extraordinary Congress to be called where a successor will be appointed.

The decision follows weeks of corruption allegations, which have rocked football’s governing body, but UEFA president Platini stated the move was positive. 

Platini said in a statement: “It was a difficult decision, a brave decision, and the right decision.”

UEFA initially called for last week’s presidential elections to be halted in the midst of arrests of FIFA officials by Swiss authorities.

However, following a U-turn, UEFA members did vote in Friday’s proceedings, which saw Blatter elected for a fifth term.
