G G G G G e t y ZURICH - Complaining that he is being “ dragged through the mud” in the FIFA corruption investigation, Michel P latini believes he is “bullet proof” and has not lost support in his bid to replace Sepp Blatter as the head of world soccer’s governing body. The UEFA president, w ho has been suspended f or 90 days along with Blatter, confirmed in an interview published Mond ay in the French daily Le Monde that he had no written contract for the $2 m illion payment he received from FIFA in 2011. Risking further FIFA e thics sanctions by breaking confidentiality rules, P latini gave a detailed defense in the case that threatens to end his presi- d ential hopes. The extra pay for his job advising Blatter from 1 998-2002 was “a thing between two men,” Platini s aid, giving a new version of why FIFA could not pay him in full more than a decade ago. “ I think it’s shameful to be dragged through the m ud,” he said, insisting the case was not a scandal. Platini submitted his F IFA election application papers before being sus- p ended and hopes that his provisional suspension will be lifted — by the FIFA appeal committee or C ourt of Arbitration for Sport — to allow him to r un. Platini must still pass an integrity check by FI- F A’s election committee, which will scrutinize all a pplicants after the deadline closes next Monday. “I don’t think I’ve lost many votes and those who k now me know I can look myself in the mirror,” Plat ini told Le Monde. “I’m bullet-proof.” On Friday, Blatter told a Swiss broadcaster the payment deal being invest igated by Swiss prosecutors as a “disloyal payment” from FIFA funds was a “gentlemen’s agree- ment.” P latini and Blatter are appealing against the suspensions imposed this month by the FIFA ethics c ommittee while it investigates the case. The ethics panel has in r ecent cases imposed strict bans when soccer officials discussed their cases in the media. “What annoys me most is to have been lumped in with the others,” said Plat ini, who joins a long list of p ast and current colleagues on the FIFA executive committee who h ave been implicated in corruption allegations. Platini told Le Monde t hat Blatter, newly elected as FIFA’s president in 1998, asked him to name h is salary to work as a personal adviser. “ ’How much to you want?’ Blatter asks,” Pla- tini told Le Monde. “I rep ly: ‘One million.’ ‘Of what?’ ‘Whatever you want, rubles, pounds, doll ars.’ There was still no euro then. He replies, ‘ Agreed. One million Swiss francs per year.’” The former France great has previously said FIFA did not pay him in f ull at the time because of the governing body’s financial problems. Platini told Le Monde t hat Blatter suggested that FIFA’s salary policy prevented him from hav- i ng a contract that paid the Frenchman more than then secretary general Michel Zen-Ruffinen. “I worked for several months without pay,” Pla- tini said. “After a while, I g o see Blatter: ‘You have a p roblem paying me?’ He says: ‘Yes, I can’t pay you 1 million because of the w age structure. You must understand that the secretary general gets 300,000 S wiss francs. You can’t get more than three times his salary. So we’ll write y ou a contract for 300,000 Swiss francs and pay the r est later.’ And that’s what happened. Only later never arrived.” P latini said he invoiced FIFA for 2 million Swiss francs in 2011because he m istakenly recalled that he had been paid 500,000 S wiss francs annually at the time, and not 300,000.

LAS VEGAS - Lamar Odom is alert and his con- d ition is improving after the former NBA star was f ound unconscious at a Nevada brothel a week ago, his family said Mond ay. A lvina Alston, publicist for Odom’s aunt Ja- N ean Mercer, said the for- m er reality-TV personality is undergoing testing, but there is no word yet on when he might be released from the hospital. “ Each day Lamar is getting stronger and r eaching significant milestones in his recovery,” Mercer said in a state- m ent. O dom was found in extremely critical condition a t the Love Ranch brothel i n the rural community of Crystal, Nevada, on Oct. 13 and was hospitalized in Las Vegas. He regained consciousness and comm unicated for the first time Friday. T he brothel said workers saw him drink alcohol and take supplements s old as “herbal Viagra.” T he Food and Drug Administration issued a w arning in 2013 against o ne brand he took, Reload, after it was found to contain sildenafil, the active ingredient in prescription Viagra. H e also told at least one of the women that he had d one cocaine, but the brothel says it did not see him take any drugs or find a ny there. O dom’s family, including estranged wife Khloe K ardashian, rushed to Las V egas to be by his side at the hospital. Love Ranch owner Dennis Hof has said that Odom arrived Oct. 10 for a f our-day stay and spent $75,000 on two women w ho accompanied him in a VIP suite. Hof also said that O dom asked about a dozen w omen working there on Sunday to sign confidenti- a lity agreements barring t hem from speaking about his visit. Hof said no one has ever asked for such an agreement and that no c onfidentiality policy exists for the customers. H owever, the women who work there do sign an agreement with the broth- e l that prohibits them f rom speaking out about clients.
