Fifa's executives will discuss Platini's candidacy when they meet in Zurich on Tuesday in the wake of his suspension.

Jason Vega (born May 30, 1987 in Brockton, Massachusetts) is a Canadian football and American football defensive end who's currently a member of the Edmonton Eskimos.

THE Swiss international is looking to earn a contract and we look at what the 31-year-old stopper might add to the Ibrox backline.

"It’s a mentality Senderos would have to get used to, even though he’s played at World Cups and for teams like Arsenal and AC Milan.”


BBC Sport understands the executive committee meeting will discuss the issue and will hear from the head of Fifa's electoral committee, Domenico Scala.

Hopefully common sense will prevail and special dispensation will be granted to EU players which makes it easier to sign them than players from outside the EU.

“He has not been training with a team so he is in for a week with us and nothing more than that. Physically he looks in good shape so we will have him in for a week and then see what that leads to.”

Fifa's executive committee meets on Tuesday to discuss whether to postpone February's presidential election.

As early as the 1950s, Vasarely was using preliminary scale drawings for his works. Vasarely called these programmations – programs (one of which is shown to the right).

The ethics committee also opened an inquiry into Platini over the 2m euros (£1.35m) payment, which was made nine years after the former France footballer carried out consultation work for Blatter.

“I know what you need up there. It is very intense when you play for one of the two big clubs.

“The problem, certainly initially if he signs, will be if he can last 90 minutes.

In mid-December 2000, Vega moved on loan to Celtic – in the previous off-season, he rejected a move to the club[3]– where he played a significant part in the winning of three trophies, in a short six-month spell. In his debut, on the 17th, he netted twice in the home demolition of Aberdeen (6–0);[4] he also scored a brace against Dunfermline in the Scottish Cup.[5]

In February 2009, Vega unsuccessfully bid to purchase Premier League team and FA Cup holders Portsmouth from its owner Alexandre Gaydamak; however, he was consistently able to demonstrate an ability to secure financing for his proposal.[12][13][14]

Given Platini's legal position, it is believed there are a number of European associations keen to explore a 'plan b' candidate.

Senderos was freed at the end of the season but Rangers manager Mark Warburton said: “He is a very talented player with a very impressive CV.

Vega attended school in Trimbach and went on to study for a degree in banking and financing, at the Zürich Business School.[1]

General secretary Jerome Valcke is also suspended. All three deny any wrongdoing.

West Ham fans would not have been able to revel in the flamboyant, joyful talents of Dimitri Payet, Leicester City would most likely have been deprived of N’Golo Kante’s midfield dynamism and, given the rules’ emphasis on full international recognition when a transfer is made, we would never have witnessed the blossoming of Thierry Henry and Cristiano Ronaldo’s sublime skills on these shores.

After his retirement, he became a founding member of the Duet Group (2002), a financial group specialising in asset management and private equity. In 2006 Vega also founded the Matterhorn Capital Rosalp, a Swiss real estate company focusing on the development of luxury hotels worldwide, opening the first facilities in Verbier, Switzerland. He also opened "Ramon Vega's Soccer School" in Marbella, Spain.

Vega signed with the New England Patriots on January 26, 2013. He was released on August 13, 2013.[3]

Of course, one benefit of a corporate environment is you won’t have to deal with the Luis Suarez types of this world and their penchant for biting. But, says Vega, there are also plenty of egos you have to keep an eye on in business: “In football, you have these young players trying to be everything. In finance, it’s exactly the same. Young traders are making all this money, thinking they’re on top of the world.”

Vega was one of five children to Spanish immigrants. He was born in Olten near Zürich, with the remaining siblings already born in his parents' native city of Madrid.

One of the most important lessons to take from football is understanding that people run the organisation, not the other way around. “A football manager needs to know exactly what kind of player he wants. Does he want a defender, a striker, or a goalie? In business, it’s the same thing. As a CEO, whether you inherit your team or build from scratch, you need to get to know people before you start making changes.”


Being a top-level athlete is akin to living in a bubble, says Vega: “I was doing what I loved, my hobby. And suddenly I had to go to work, like everybody else.”

“You don’t play for the clubs he has played for without having the ability. But how fit is he? That’s what he has to prove.

Vega told BBC Sport he will decide over the next three to five days if he is to stand.

On June 22, 2015, Vega signed with the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League.

He is accused of signing a contract "unfavourable" to Fifa and making a "disloyal payment" to Platini.

But compatriot Ramon Vega can fully understand why the former Arsenal, Valencia, AC Milan and Switzerland defender’s appearance at the Rangers training ground yesterday has received little more than a lukewarm reception from the Ibrox faithful.

In retrospect, Vega is grateful for the good fortune of being surrounded by forces that pushed him towards education. Because retiring from football can be a brutal experience: “The most difficult part of retirement from any sports profession is – where do you go next? When I retired from football, the first two or three years were the hardest years of my life.”

“He seems to have been around for a long time but he’s got a few years left in him if he is injury free and can get up to a level of fitness that is needed to play for Rangers.

GORDON PARKS manned the phones as Rangers fans called to voice their fear over what Celtic might do to Mark Warburton's side at Parkhead.

The governing body's ethics committee began its investigation after the Swiss attorney general opened criminal proceedings against Blatter in September.
