FIFA Bans Head of Brazilian Soccer Federation for 90 Days

PARIS – FIFA suspended on Friday the head of the Brazilian soccer federation Marco Polo Del Nero for 90 days over a breach of its rules.

FIFA ethics committee added that the decision bans Del Nero from any soccer-related activities during this period, starting immediately.

“The duration of the ban may be extended for an additional period not exceeding 45 days. During this time, Mr. Polo Del Nero is banned from all football activities at both national and international level. The ban comes into force immediately,” the committee said in a statement.

The 76-year-old Del Nero was accused of accepting a 6.5 million euro ($7.6 million) commission.

In the wake of these accusations, the ethics committee opened an inquiry that led to his suspension.

A corruption scandal rocked the FIFA in May 2015, when the United States’ justice authorities issued arrest warrants for senior officials during their stay at Zurich.

Antonio Carlos Nunes, one of the current vice-presidents is set to be the Brazilian soccer federation head, according the soccer governing body.
