Michel Platini appears before the Court of Arbitration for Sport Friday to appeal his six-year FIFA ban for ethics violations, with his future in football hanging on the outcome.The suspensions were cut to six years in February.Both men insist they did nothing wrong and that the payment was part of a legitimate oral contract tied to consulting work that Platini did for FIFA between 1999 and 2002 .UEFA has said it will not replace Platini until all his appeals are exhausted, so if the former French star is successful at CAS he could reclaim his job in time to preside over Euro 2016 .It consists of three legal experts, one each representing Platini and FIFA and a president.
