Former FIFA Secretary General Jerome Valcke

FIFA’s ethics committee has extended the suspension of former Secretary General Jérôme Valcke by 45 days. This comes a day after investigators recommended an extension and that he be banned from football for 9 years over alleged corruption charges. The Frenchman is accused of involvement in a scheme to profit from the sale of World Cup tickets. He denies the allegations. Sepp Blatter, the outgoing president of world football's governing body, and vice president Michel Platini were both suspended for 8 years in December following a FIFA ethics committee's investigation.
