ON TAPE: The BBC reported Platini "wants officials' conversations in European matches recorded after a controversial goal" in the Champions League semifinal between Bayern Munich and FC Barcelona. Bayern striker Thomas Müller "appeared to foul Jordi Alba before the German side's third goal" in its 4-0 first-leg win. Platini said, "I don't believe nobody saw the foul. Why was nothing said? I have asked the general secretary to record conversations between officials in matches involving five officials" (BBC, 5/3).
