UEFA president Michel Platini has revealed he has yet to receive any apology from Premier League chairman Sir Dave Richards after his comments that FIFA and UEFA "stole" football from England.

Richards promised to apologise after making the remarks last week, and league chief executive Richard Scudamore said on Tuesday that the chairman had rung those he may have offended. But Platini said the apology may have got lost, and the chance of a face-to-face apology was lost when Richards also pulled out of attending UEFA's Congress in Istanbul on Thursday.

Platini said: "I read in an English media outlet he was going to send an email - maybe the email got lost in the corridors of UEFA but I never saw it."
