Uefa president Michel Platini insists he will not return a £16,000 watch given to him by the Brazilian Football Confederation. The most fascinating question from this whole affair is how many of the 65 watches dished out will be returned, as requested, to Fifa.
Surely they should return them to the sponsor who handed them out, not to Fifa. Meanwhile:
Fifa refused to clarify whether president Sepp Blatter received a watch and if so, if he had returned it.
On a totally unrelated matter, Herr Step Ladder is standing for re-election and will need to canvas support and votes.
