RIO DE JANEIRO, Feb. 8 (Xinhua) -- Jakson Follmann has expressed a wish to return to competitive sport as he continues his recovery from the Chapecoense air disaster.

The 24-year-old goalkeeper, who had the lower half of his right leg amputated, walked for the first time since the November 28 crash after being fitted with a prosthesis on Wednesday.

"Walking is something that is so simple but it became a big wish," Follmann told the Folha de S.Paulo newspaper.

"I didn't know how to react when I took my first steps and saw my mother crying. I still have a serious injury in my left foot which requires a lot of care and patience. I spent a long time in hospital and now I want to return to my normal life."

Follmann was one of six people pulled alive from the wreckage of the LaMia charter plane, which slammed into a hillside near Medellin, Colombia, on November 28 after running out of fuel.

Seventy-one people died, including 19 Chapecoense footballers and all of the club's coaching staff.

The tragedy occurred less than two days before Chapecoense, a small team from Southern Brazil, were due to play Colombia's Atletico Nacional in the first leg of the two-match Copa Sudamericana final.

Chapecoense were later declared winners of the tournament at the request of Atletico Nacional. The title means the club automatically qualifies for this year's Copa Libertadores, South America's premier club competition.

Follmann said he hoped to play sport again in some capacity.

"I'm curious to see what my body will allow me to do," he said. "I want to try several types of sports because everything that I have achieved is thanks to sport and football.

"I'm living day by day and I know that I need more time to see what I'm capable of doing. I'm thinking about whether I could take part in a Paralympics. I'm an athlete and I see myself as an athlete. That's going to help me in my recovery. I have positive thoughts."

PARIS Cheap Air Max 90 Online , Jan. 7 (Xinhua) -- Banned European soccer boss Michel Platini told French sports daily L'Equipe on Thursday that he formally withdrew his candidacy from the presidency race for scandal-plagued FIFA.

"I will not present myself for the presidency of FIFA," said the UEFA chief in an interview with L'Equipe to be published in full on Friday.

Platini, along with departing FIFA president Sepp Blatter, was banned from all football-related activity for eight years by FIFA's ethics committee on December 21 over a two million Swiss franc payment he had received from the Swiss in 2011.

The 60-year-old had been hoping to win an appeal in time to be allowed a candidacy for the FIFA election on February 26, before he changed his mind.

"I am withdrawing my candidature. I no longer have the time nor the means to go and see the voters Cheap Air Max Online , to meet people, and to fight against the other candidates.

"By withdrawing, I will concertrate on my defence," added the former French international, who has insisted he's done nothing wrong.

A clear favorite to succeed Blatter for the sport's most powerful job before the allegations emerged Cheap Nike Air Max 1 Shoes , Platini was initially suspended for 90 days before the eight-year ban was imposed.

"It's a matter of schedule, but not only that," said Platini, referring to the January 26 deadline for nominations. "How can you win an election when you are prevented from campaigning?"

Platini had explained that the 2 million Swiss francs were paid to him by FIFA with Blatter's approval for his work done as special consultant during 1999-2002, but FIFA's ethics committee said the payment Cheap Nike Air Max 90 Shoes , made at a time when Blatter's seeking re-election, lacked trasparency.

"Yet when Blatter announced his retirement, I received 150 declarations of support -- 100 official letters from federations and 50 promises. All this in two days," Platini told L'Equipe.

"I have fought like I have always fought in my life, but I have not been given the chance to play the game Cheap Nike Air Max Shoes ," added the Frenchman, who instead reiterate his intention to overturn the eight-year ban by appealing to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

Platini's withdrawal leaves five declared candidates for the FIFA presidency, and they are Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein of Jordan, Asian Football Confederation President Sheikh Salman Bin Ebrahim Al Khalifa of Bahrain, former FIFA official Jerome Champagne of France Cheap Air Max 1 Shoes , UEFA General Secretary Gianni Infantino of Switzerland and South Africa businessman Tokyo Swxwale.
