Another member of FIFA’s embattled corps has learned his punishment for egregious ethics violations.
Jerome Valcke, the longtime secretary general of football’s governing body, is going to be away from the game for 12 years, banned from the sport by FIFA’s independent ethics committee.
The decision has been made by Fifa’s independent ethics committee following allegations of potential misconduct related to sales of World Cup tickets.
During the investigations, several other acts of potential misconduct arose, including travel expenses policies and regulations.
Valcke’s ban is four years longer than the ones issued to Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini.
