The payment, signed off by FIFA president Sepp Blatter, appears to have been paid solely on the basis of an oral agreement, sources with knowledge of the case have confirmed to PA Sport. Platini did submit an invoice to FIFA in February 2011 and was paid 2million Swiss francs.

The UEFA president has said Blatter informed him when he started as his advisor in 1999 that it was not initially possible to pay him "the totality of my salary because of FIFA’s financial situation at that time".
