Platini pleased with progress in Gdansk for Euros

UEFA President Michel Platini says he is pleased with the

progress made in building a stadium, airport and roads in the

Polish city of Gdansk ahead of next year’s European

Championship.

Poland and co-host Ukraine have been struggling to complete

stadiums and upgrade airports, train stations and other

infrastructure in preparation for Euro 2012.

The PAP news agency said Platini congratulated Gdansk Mayor

Pawel Adamowicz on the progress on Tuesday at the start of a

three-day trip to Poland.

PAP quoted Platini as saying that he is ”very satisfied with

what I have been able to see so far.”
