Having originally been Blatter's great pal (heir presumptive?) at FIFA, Platini then fell out with him.

I reckon this farce of a tournament was Platini's idea to reinforce his powerbase at UEFA - i.e. divide the sweeties amongst as many Associations (i.e. votes) as possible.

Tbh, I've never liked Platini, ever since he sabotaged the career of fellow French international Jean-Francois Larios, who was all set to sign for Spurs, all because Larios had the temerity to be knobbing Platini's missus:

I mean, if she could "take one for the team", I don't see why he couldn't have - he was team captain, after all!

Was this not exactly why this tournament came to be, Platini buying political votes for years to come? It's clearly an utter nonsense of a setup. They might as well be giving Israel games to host to spread the tournament further and wider. Tournament for the fans my hole.
"I called him an embarrassment to FIFA and to himself," .... He said 'No-one speaks to me like that'.... and I said, "well I do' and that was that."

My Euro 2020 was in Tbilisi last October. It was a great few days. I thought the venue was great. It was beneficial for the fans, the locals and the Georgian economy.
