ZURICH: Suspended FIFA President Sepp Blatter and European soccer head Michel Platini have lost their appeals against provisional 90-days bans by the global soccer body’s ethics committee, FIFA said on Wednesday.

Blatter and Platini were suspended in October, engulfed by a deepening corruption scandal as their sport faces criminal investigations in Switzerland and the United States.
