Europe's football boss on Saturday said Turkey should decide which it wants to host the most: 2020 European Football Championship or the 2020 Olympic Games.

Speaking at a press conference ahead of Sunday's decider between Spain and Italy in Kiev, Ukraine, in the 2012 European Football Championship, Michel Platini said that UEFA was considering that the 2020 European event be hosted by 12 or 13 cities across Europe.

"Turkey should first make up its mind on whether it wants the European Championship or the Olympic Games. You have a target to reach but you want to follow two ways to get there. Turkey should decide first. But your candidacy process for 2020 European Championship is going really well," Platini said in response to a question on how Turkey's candidacy for the 2020 tournament would be affected by UEFA possible multi-host plan.
Platini also said Turkish referee Cuneyt Cakir showed an impressive performance at the 2012 European Championship, adding, "he seized the opportunity he was given in European Championship semi-final between Barcelona and Chelsea and he did not disappointed us," at the 2012 European Championship.
