NYON, Switzerland (Reuters) - European soccer body UEFA's national associations "fully support" Michel Platini, Austrian FA President Leo Windtner told reporters after a meeting of all 54 member associations on Thursday.

Platini, who hopes to be a candidate for FIFA president in February, was suspended for 90 days by FIFA's Ethics Committee last week but is appealing the decision and denies any wrongdoing.
