Sepp Blatter was "reckless" when he paid $2 million to Michel Platini in a transaction that led both to be banned from world football, according to a Court of Arbitration for Sport ruling.Details of the hearing in August were revealed in a newly published 68-page verdict written by CAS judges to explain why they dismissed Blatter's appeal to overturn a six-year ban in December.By unilaterally supporting Platini's request to start the plan in 1998, Blatter unlawfully created a pension fund for his former protege of $2.6 million in 2015 instead of $1.52 million, the judges noted.Platini, who attended the hearing as a witness, also seemed not to check his contract before requesting money that was paid in 2011, when Blatter was campaigning to win re-election.
