UEFA president Michel Platini has called on the elite clubs´ group G14 to disband and drop its lawsuits claiming compensation for players injured on international duty.

Platini called G14 "elitist" and said it was time for football to put an end to its "quarrels", adding to UEFA´s extraordinary congress in Zurich that a new body, the Professional Football Strategy Council, would provide a forum for clubs to air their grievances.

He said: "Now we can put an end to our quarrels, we can stop seeing each other before the courts, we can stop making a spectacle of ourselves in front of the whole of Europe."
