Frenchman Platini, 61, was head of Uefa until his ban for breaching ethics rules over a £1.3m “disloyal payment”.

Uefa is meeting to select the former France midfielder’s successor.

It asked Fifa for permission for its ex-leader to attend the gathering.

“The Fifa ethics committee has informed Uefa that Michel Platini will be allowed to address the 12th Extraordinary Uefa Congress in Athens on 14 September,” it said in a statement.

“A request for Mr Platini’s attendance had been recently made by Uefa and we welcome this decision,” it added.
