Luis Figo joins UEFA as football advisor

Luis Figo joins governing body UEFA in an advisory capacity.

Former Barcelona, Real Madrid and Inter Milan star Luis Figo has joined UEFA as a football advisor.

The ex-Portugal international and one-time Ballon d'Or winner will preside over the technical aspects and laws of the game at the governing body.

"I believe I can have a positive influence in passing on my knowledge," said Figo in a statement.

"I have learned so much from football that I am now really looking forward to giving something back."

Figo will work alongside Germany international Nadine Kessler and ex-Serbia midfielder Dejan Stankovic, who recently joined UEFA in advisory capacities.

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has described Figo as a "very valuable asset" to the organisation.
