Fifa secretary Jerome Valcke suspended

Source: BBC Sport

FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke has been put on leave and released from his duties until further notice.


A FIFA statement said it had “been made aware of a series of allegations involving the secretary general”.

Newspaper allegations on Thursday  implicated Valcke, 54, in a scheme to sell World Cup tickets for above face value.

The Frenchman, who is said to deny the allegations, has been in his post at FIFA since 2007.

FIFA has been engulfed by claims of widespread corruption since May, when Swiss police raided a hotel in Zurich and arrested seven of its top executives.
