Forever in touch with the common-or-garden football fan, UEFA bigwig Michel Platini has revealed that he is pondering a radical rethink of the 2020 EUROs, with cities all over Europe hosting games. The star of the 1984 Euro Finals said:

“The Euros in 2020 could be held all over Europe.”

“It could be either one country and 12 stadiums or one stadium in 12 or 13 cities. This matter will be discussed very seriously.”

When the issue of cost for fans was raised, Michael O’Leary… I mean Michel Platini is reported to have replied:

“There are low-cost airlines these days.”

Glad to see the UEFA top brass have their chubby, gold-heavy fingers on the pulse of the game.

I can see it now – Ryanair charging an extra £10 for passengers wearing a football jersey and £5 for a football scarf. Although surely no-one would mind if they added a £1million tariff for groups of England fans carrying brass instruments and drums.

    How is this moron in a position of power? There were enough problems with the tournament being held in two neighbouring countries, all over europe? Give me a break. Step down already Platini before the rest of your reputation goes to pot.

    This guy should be put in a mental hospital, he’s getting crazy.
    How can you even think about something like this, the EURO will lose all it’s charmes and fanzones etc.

    Obviously theres a lot more bribes that can be taken if you allow more countries to host games.

    Sod the fans, this is all about corruption yet again.

    Platini certainly has some brass ones, doesn’t he?
    Fecking snide little shit.

    This reminds me of his response to his critics over the host selection for Euro 2016.

    as fans we just need to find a way to get rid of these people at Uefa, the minority are making decisions that the majority that don’t agree with them.
