Platini on board
ONE OF THE GREATEST footballers of all time is set to grace this island’s shores, if only for a brief time.
President of the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA), Michel Platini, along with CONCACAF president Jeff Webb are among a six-man delegation which will arrive in Barbados on Sunday night for a one-day stay, as part of efforts to assist the Barbados Football Association (BFA) with its development programme.
This was revealed by BFA president Randy Harris who told NATION SPORT that the visit comes after he made a request through UEFA’s legal counsel, Veron Mosengo Omba, asking for some technical assistance.
Harris said he explained to Omba his vision for the BFA, which included both short-term and medium-term goals.
