CAS dismisses ex-FIFA Sec Gen, Valcke’s appeal against ban
The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) dismissed former FIFA Secretary General Jerome Valcke’s appeal against his 10-year ban for breaching the world football body’s code of ethics.
The court, which is at Lausanne in Switzerland, said the ban and the 100,000 Swiss franc (about $100,290 or N38 million) fine were “wholly appropriate”.
Its action has thus confirmed the decision made by FIFA’s Appeal Committee in 2016.
Valcke, who was former FIFA president Sepp Blatter’s top aide, was found to be involved in the resale of FIFA World Cup tickets and other ethics violations.
