FIFA suspend Sepp Blatter, Michel Platini & Jerome Valcke

NULL

World football’s governing body FIFA has suspended its president Sepp Blatter, secretary general Jerome Valcke and vice-president Michel Platini for 90 days. Former FIFA vice-president Chung Mong-joon has been banned for six years and fined 100,000 Swiss Francs. The punishments were handed out by the FIFA’s ethics committee after an investigation into wrongdoing. Earlier, UEFA president Platini had said that reports that he was to be suspended were “insidious” leaks that were “essentially an attempt to damage my reputation”. In a statement, he added that he is he certain that he will prove his innocence with "full transparency and the unity that gives football its strength.”
