Lausanne - European soccer chief Michel Platini is satisfied with a ruling from the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) to order FIFA not to extend its 90-day provisional suspension, the Frenchman's lawyer said on Friday.

"Michel Platini notes with satisfaction that CAS partially granted his request when it demanded that FIFA not extend his ban," Thibaud d'Ales said.
