UEFA Boss Platini Answers Croatian PM: ‘I understand your comments’

platiniUEFA President Michel Platini has replied to a letter sent by Croatian Prime Minister Zoran Milanović, in which the PM pleaded for leniency from European football’s governing body following the swastika incident at Poljud stadium during Croatia’s 1-1 draw with Italy in a Euro 2016 qualifier on 12 June…

“I understand very well the comments you present and a copy of the letter I have forwarded to our Disciplinary Commission to thoroughly consider,” said Platini in the reply amongst other things which were not revealed.

UEFA’s Disciplinary Commission will decide Croatia’s fate on 23 July.
