Paris- UEFA chief Michel Platini has appealed against a 90-day suspension imposed on him by world governing body FIFA as part of a corruption investigation, a close associate said on Saturday.
Lawyers for Platini, who is also a vice-president of FIFA, lodged the appeal at the organisation's Zurich headquarters, the associate said.
The Frenchman has already denied any wrongdoing in accepting a $2m payment from FIFA in 2011 for consulting work he undertook years earlier and called the ban "farcical."
