Michel Platini was beyond compare as a creative mid-fielder, his record of 68 goals in 147 league games for Juventus is remarkable. Michel Platini is only the second player (after Johan Cruyff) to win three European Footballer of the Year awards.

In 1987 Platini was appointed the French national coach, which he relinquished after the 1992 European Championship. He was the co-organizer of the 1998 France World Cup.

Platini is recognised as the greatest scorer in the history of the French national team.
