FIFA Sacks General Secretary Jerome Valcke

World football governing body, FIFA, has confirmed the sack of its General Secretary, Jeeome Valcke.

Valcke had earlier been suspended for 90 days for his involvement in a World cup ticket scam where tickets were sold above their face value.
He has now been sacked with immediate effect and is facing a possible nine year ban from all football related activities.

“The FIFA Emergency Committee decided, on 9 January 2016, to dismiss Jerome Valcke from the position of FIFA Secretary General with immediate effect,” Zurich-based FIFA said in a statement.

“The duties of the Secretary General will continue to be assumed by the Acting Secretary General, Dr Markus Kattner.”
