Once a great midfielder for the football club Juventus, Michel Francois Platini showed a promising future in the football world. From being one of the greatest soccer players, he became a soccer coach and a manager, and later on the Sixth President of Union of European Football Associations. However, his journey to success took a different turn with his involvement in the 2015 FIFA Corruption Case and the 2015 Greek Football Scandal. He was initially suspended for 90 days and was later on fully banned from any football-related activities. Many say that this ban is the end of his career in the sport for Platini.
Nicknamed as “Le Roi” (The King), Platini dominated the pitch with his prolific skills, especially in passing the ball in either long or short shots. He also took initiative when playing by assisting other players to score. He is also best known for his penalty shot and his free kick. His control of the ball is astonishing as is his ability to dribble. He was undoubtedly one of the best soccer players who showed admirable attributes on the field.
