Platini and Blatter are both suspended for 90 days from all football related activities.
The French legend, one of seven candidates to succeed Sepp Blatter as FIFA president, believes that his experience as a player, coach and administrator far outstrips any of his six rivals.
In all modesty, I am the best-placed to lead world football, Platini, 60, told Swiss daily Le Matin in an interview in which he even went on to compare himself to a medieval knight.
I am the only one to have a broad vision for football.
Platini and Blatter are both suspended for 90 days while an investigation is carried out into a controversial 1.8 million euro payment made by the FIFA chief to the Frenchman in 2011.
