Fifa sack deputy general secretary Markus Kattner

Fifa have continued their clampdown on corruption, announcing the release of deputy secretary general Markus Kattner with immediate effect.

A statement released on Fifa's website on Monday evening read: "Fifa's deputy secretary general Markus Kattner has been dismissed from his position effective immediately.

"Fifa's internal investigation uncovered breaches of his fiduciary responsibilities in connection with his employment contract.

"Fifa will not comment further on any of the details, but will continue its cooperation with the relevant authorities."

Kattner had been acting general secretary after previous general secretary Jerome Valcke was also fired for irregularities.

Fifa have named Senegal’s Fatma Samoura as their new general secretary at a congress earlier this month.
