Issa Hayatou Named FIFA Acting President - Fifa Suspends Sepp Blatter, Michel Platini and Jérôme Valcke

It had all gone quiet from the man they used to call ‘Mr Teflon’ in Zurich’s corridors of power but now Jérôme Valcke’s lawyer has also protested his client’s innocence

African football leader, Issa Hayatou has been named to take charge of FIFA after former president, Blatter was suspended and “stripped of all duties.”

African football leader Issa Hayatou on Thursday took temporary charge of FIFA after Sepp Blatter was “relieved of his duties” because of his 90-day suspension, the world body said.

Hayatou, 69, is president of the Confederation of African Football, and takes over as senior vice president of FIFA. He has in the past been reprimanded for misconduct by the International Olympic Committee.

“Joseph S. Blatter was relieved of all his duties as FIFA president” after the move by the FIFA ethics committee to suspend him for 90 days because he is under criminal investigation by Swiss prosecutors, FIFA said.
