Baku, January 14, AZERTAC
FIFA said it had fired Secretary General Jerome Valcke amid alleged corruption involving World Cup ticket sales, one of many scandals surrounding football's governing body, according to The Huffington Post.
"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 without giving a reason for the dismissal.
An ethics investigation into the case recommended a nine-year ban for the Frenchman, former right-hand man to FIFA President Sepp Blatter who himself has been banned for eight years.
Last week FIFA's ethics judges announced they had opened formal proceedings against Valcke, who has denied wrongdoing in the past.
