FIFA ethics investigators recommend nine-year ban for Jerome Valcke
Valcke's 90-day suspension over World Cup ticket selling accusations was set to end on Tuesday but investigators also recommended the ethics committee extend this by 45 days.

Zurich: FIFA's ethics watchdog has recommended a nine-year ban for secretary-general Jerome Valcke over World Cup ticket selling accusations, one of many corruption allegations involving officials at soccer's crisis-plagued governing body.

Cornel Borbely, chief investigator for FIFA's independent ethics committee, also requested that the Valcke be fined 100,000 Swiss francs after completing an investigation into the Frenchman's conduct, the watchdog said in a statement.

Valcke was suspended for 90 days on Oct. 8 - a move almost overlooked amid the fall of veteran president Sepp Blatter and the charging of 41 people, including top FIFA officials, by U.S prosecutors worldwide for offences including corruption, fraud and money laundering.

Valcke had been placed on leave by FIFA less than one month earlier. He has called the allegations against him "fabricated and outrageous"

Borbely completed his investigation on the day that Valcke's 90-day was due to expire and requested that it be extended for a further 45 days pending a final decision in the case, the statement said.
