Physical difficulties couldn’t field out this best attacking midfielder

0

Michel Platini of France is known as one of the best attacking midfielders of the game. He was also known for his trademark freekicks. He had breathing difficulties and a weak heart. He has been named the European Footballer of the Year thrice in 1983, 1984 and 1985. In his teens while taking a breathing test on a spirometer, he fainted. The doctor’s verdict on his breathing difficulties and weak heart apparently brought an end to all his hopes of pursuing a career in football, but what actually happened is contrary to that and by all means a history.
