FIFA judges extend Jerome Valcke suspension by 45 days

FIFA ethics judges agreed Wednesday to extend secretary general Jerome Valcke`s temporary suspension for 45 more days, after investigators urged them to take more time to weigh corruption allegations against the organisation`s former second-in-command.

"The adjudicatory chamber of the Ethics Committee chaired by Mr Hans-Joachim Eckert has decided to extend the suspension of Mr Jerome Valcke by 45 days," it said in a statement.

The investigatory chamber of FIFA`s ethics committee, which wants Valcke to be banned from football for nine years, had called for the extension on Tuesday.
