The FIFA Emergency Committee on Wednesday dismissed Jérôme Valcke from the position of FIFA Secretary General with immediate effect.
The World Football Governing body in a statement said Valcke “is therefore no longer the Secretary General of FIFA”.
In the statement, “The employment relationship between FIFA and Jérôme Valcke has also been terminated.
“Jérôme Valcke was provisionally released from his duties as Secretary General on 17 September 2015, and on 7 January 2016, formal adjudicatory proceedings were opened against him by the adjudicatory chamber of the FIFA Ethics Committee chaired by Hans-Joachim Eckert. The provisional suspension imposed on Jérôme Valcke on 8 October 2015 and extended on 6 January 2016 continues to be valid.
“The duties of the Secretary General will continue to be assumed by the Acting Secretary General, Dr Markus Kattner.”
