There's no guarantee that Michel Platini would be any straighter than Blatter.

 

Frank Riberi has retired from international football. However, Platini says he will suspend him for three games if he doesn't turn up for France's next fixture.

 

I think recourse to our dear friends the Human Rights lawyers might be in order. Shami and Cherie are no doubt  awaiting his call.

Is Ribery's court case for that underage prostitute business still ongoing? He could end up missing more than three games,

 

Shame about Platini. Great player turned hopeless administrator.

Platini is a very grim administrator.  Very much in the Blatter mould.

 

But, in more positive French football news, I went to a match there.

Not sure if this has slipped under the radar a bit but it seems Hull City's Chairman Ass eem Allam isn't quite the generous benefactor to the Tigers he first appeared to be.

 

This story is in today's paper and in the comments section, there are a few suggesting the £100 million plus he's "given" to the football club is in fact a loan and he's charging appropriate interest.

 

Have these few people got it wrong or have the public of Hull been had with tales of the man's generosity?

The money Allam has put in is definitely in the form of a loan, mate. I remember reading somewhere that it's shown as such in the club's last set of accounts. I don't know the interest rate he's paying himself but you can guarantee it will be a little better than the local building society. I'm sure he could get an even better return if he invested it but that's not the point. He's not quite the generous philanthropist he likes to be portrayed as.
