Benny Alon, an Israeli-American sports marketing consultant and friend of Platini, exposed Valcke’s ticket dealings at a presser in Zurich in September 2015.

He claims he was told by Platini’s adviser, Kevin Lamour, that he received a "direct threat from Jerome Valcke that if Michel did not stop the press conference, there will be some circumstances."
