Published on: 30 June 2020

Fifa's former acting secretary-general, Markus Kattner, has been banned from all football-related activity for 10 years and fined one million Swiss francs after being guilty of conflicts of interest and abusing his position, the sport's world governing body announced Tuesday.

The punishment was handed down by Fifa's ethics committee following an investigation opened in September 2016 into Kattner, the scandal-plagued body's former president Sepp Blatter, and former secretary-general Jerome Valcke.
