Michel Platini slams new FIFA `failure`

Paris: UEFA president Michel Platini said Wednesday that the resignation of FIFA`s top corruption investigator Michael Garcia was a "new failure" by football`s governing body.

"FIFA`s ethics committee was created to increase transparency at the organisation, that`s what we wanted, but in the end it has just caused more confusion. Mr. Garcia`s resignation is a new failure for FIFA," Platini said.

Garcia resigned on Wednesday as head of FIFA`s ethics committee investigatory chamber in protest at the governing body`s handling of his report into the bids by Russia and Qatar for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.
