Michel Platini, the former French and Juventus legend, has been elected as president of UEFA after beating incumbent Lennart Johansson. The Swede who had been in charge of UEFA for the last 16 years was opposed to the proposed changes of limiting the Champions League to a maximum of 3 teams per country. I'm not too keen on these changes myself, the Champions League is clearly the finest club football tournament bar none and to again tinker in such a poor way makes you wonder about these people in charge in Nyon. There seems to be a lack of common sense when it comes to changing the Champions League. They messed up big time when they got rid of the Last 16 Group Stages, when what they should have done would be to give each team a 2 leg first round tie and then have a Group stage at the Last 16 but no they end up doing it arse ways and while it still remains the finest club football tournament it's still not quite right. No doubt though for Platini this is only a stepping stone to bigger and better things as he'll have his eyes on the top job at FIFA when Blatter's term expires.
