Fans Have The Right To Travel In Safety
Updated Sunday, 25th March 2007
New UEFA president Michel Platini wnats to make a difference and his new general secretary David Taylor can see one issue that needs attention straight away.
Taylor said: "They have to be safe when they're travelling and going to stadiums in different countries in Europe - we can't have football matches where there's an unsafe environment. We are very disappointed with some of the things that have been happening recently. I think it's a bit naive to think we need absolute standardisation across Europe - because there are different cultures, different police forces, different security methods - but there should be certain minimum standards that people can enjoy. I think that's obviously now very much up towards the top of the European football agenda because of what's been happening in recent weeks."
Taylor is looking forward eagerly to his new role within UEFA, and his working relationship with Platini. He said: "It'll be very close, it's like chairman-chief executive, president-general secretary. I expect to be his right-hand man, carrying forward many of his new ideas and policies."
