Platini says presidency bid not dependent on Blatter

Michel Platini's decision regarding his FIFA presidency bid in 2015 will be made without considering the plans of the incumbent Sepp Blatter.

FIFA's long-serving president said two years ago that he was starting his fourth and last term, but he indicated recently he could seek another four years in charge if that was necessary to lead the governing body's reform process.

Platini says he hasn't made up his mind about standing, but he will definitely make an announcement at UEFA's executive committee meeting next month in Dubrovnik.
