Michel Platini said his commitment not to stand against Sepp Blatter for the Fifa presidency was the best decision for Uefa.
This is the decision I have made. I wanted to do what is best for Uefa,
Now is not my time, not yet. I want to complete what I have started and I want to go to the end of my contract with Uefa and if the federations wish I will still have a few years before this contract comes to an end.
I have thought long and hard but I never managed to convince myself that I had to go to Fifa.I chose from the heart and on the basis of my passionate feeling.
