Michel François Platini is a former French football player and manager, and the president of the Union of European Football Associations since 2007.

Regarded as one of the greatest footballers of all time, he came sixth in the FIFA Player of the Century vote, and was chosen on the FIFA World Cup Dream Team.

He won the Ballon d'Or three times, in 1983, 1984 and 1985, a record jointly held with Dutch internationals Johan Cruyff and Marco van Basten.

In 2004, Platini was named by Pelé in the FIFA 100 list of the world's greatest living players.

During his professional football career, Platini played for the clubs Nancy, Saint-Étienne, and Juventus, and was a member of the French national team that won the 1984 European Championship, a tournament in which he was the top goalscorer and voted the best player.

He also participated in the 1978, 1982 and 1986 World Cups, reaching the semi-finals in the latter two.

Platini, Alain Giresse, Luis Fernández and Jean Tigana together made up the "carré magique", the group of midfield players that formed the heart of the French team in the 1980s.
