The Swiss criminal investigation into FIFA President Sepp Blatter is also causing a headache for those close to him.
Michel Platini — the latest name to be brought up in the case — is the current president of European football’s governing body and the biggest contender to succeed Blatter when he steps down in February.
Although Platini is not under criminal investigation, Swiss authorities are focusing on a reported payment of two million Swiss francs he might have received from Blatter.
