FIFA extends ban on Blatter and Valcke by six years

FIFA said Wednesday it had extended the ban on its former president Sepp Blatter and former secretary-general Jerome Valcke by six years and eight months, in relation to the receipt of huge bonuses, reports AFP. Blatter, who is 85, received 23 million Swiss francs ($24.6 million) linked to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa and the 2014 World Cup in Brazil as well as the Confederations Cup tournament in Brazil that preceded it, FIFA's Ethics Committee said in a statement. The Ethics Committee said it had also fined each man one million Swiss francs.
