Football: Fifa court bans Valcke for 12 years for misconduct
[ZURICH] A Fifa tribunal on Friday banned former secretary general Jerome Valcke for 12 years for misconduct ranging from involvement in a World Cup ticket scam to "sightseeing" travel at the expense of the world body.
Fifa's ethics committee tribunal said that Valcke, who was fired last month, was banned "for 12 years from all football-related activities".
The 54-year-old Frenchman had previously denied any wrongdoing after he was implicated in the sale of black market sales of tickets for the 2014 World Cup.
