In an interview with LCI, Michel Platini returned to the tragic events of May 28 at the Stade de France during the Champions League final between Real Madrid and Liverpool, where the Spanish club once again reigned over the competition.

According to him, France is not solely responsible for these incident: “We have a know-how in France that is important, between 1998 and Euro 2016, everything was fine”

For the former UEFA president, it is the institution of European soccer that failed in the organization of the event. The 67-year-old said he was "hurt" by what happened in Saint-Denis that night.

"There I think there was a failure by UEFA. We blame everyone a little bit, but the organizer is UEFA. The police are there to solve problems. It is UEFA who should dictate things and who made a big mistake. It won't happen again, just organize it right. It is not a big deal. France will organize the Olympics and the Rugby World Cup very well."

Platini will not return to the world of soccer

Former player and former soccer executive Michel Platini said Friday that he will not try to return to FIFA or UEFA and announced that he has taken legal action in France against those who wanted to destroy him.

"I have no desire to return to that world," Platini said in an interview with television channel LCI a week after being acquitted by Swiss justice of a corruption charge.
