European football’s governing body UEFA will elect a new president to succeed disgraced Michel Platini on September 14, it was announced on Wednesday.

Platini was found guilty last year of an ethics breach when he received a 1.8 million euro payment from former Fifa top dog Sepp Blatter in 2011.

Blatter was also banned over the payment.

Former France captain Platini then quit on May 9 after failing to overturn his ban from all football related activities at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

The vote for UEFA’s new president will take place in Athens at the body’s extraordinary congress.
