Fate favours Uefa president

Michel Platini’s name was already destined to be written into the Europa League’s brand spanking new history book given that he oversaw its introduction, but he made doubly sure last night by finding the net against Fulham. Well, his namesake at least.

Brazilian striker Michel Platini Ferreira Mesquita found the perfect opportunity to launch himself on the European stage by bagging his first goal for CSKA Sofia on the opening night of Platini 1.0’s relaunched second rate Champions League.

You really couldn’t make these things up.
