"I am not fighting for my future, but against injustice," the former French star told journalists outside the Zurich headquarters of world football's governing body.

FIFA judges in December banned Platini from all football activities for eight years over a 2 million Swiss franc payment ($2 million, 1.8 million euros) he received from FIFA's disgraced president Sepp Blatter in 2011.
