Football: Uefa chief Platini undecided on Fifa candidacy; announcement due in September
PARIS (AFP) - Uefa president Michel Platini says he remains unsure whether he will run for the same post at the head of world governing body Fifa when current president Sepp Blatter's mandate expires in 2015.
"I am in the middle of thinking whether it is good or not good but I will certainly say something at Dubrovnik (the Croatian city where the next Uefa executive committee meetings will be held on September 19 and 20)," the Frenchman told sports daily L'Equipe.
"I am obliged to say something because everyone is expecting me to express myself," added the 58-year-old who enjoyed a glorious playing career that peaked in 1984 when he captained France to their first European championship.
"It is not a simple decision. People will fight each other to have the position of Fifa president, but not me.
