A Bum Idea from Michel Platitudini
Posted by Paul Gardner on Oct. 9, 7:00 a.m.
Michel Platini has had a vision that he finds unacceptable. He sees an English soccer club -- Liverpool -- with "an Arab sheikh as president, a Brazilian coach and nine or 11 African players." He asks: "Where is Liverpool in that?" English clubs, he says, risk "losing their identity. We have to make some rules."
