Sep 24, 2015 | Soccer, Sports | 0 comments

Swiss authorities want to access the email accounts of suspended FIFA general secretary Jerome Valcke. Newspaper reports alleged that Valcke was part of scheme to sell World Cup tickets for above face value. The Frenchman has denied these allegations, calling them “fabricated” and “outrageous”. Meanwhile, an extradition to the US has been approved for Rafael Esquivel, the former boss of the Venezuelan Football Federation. He was one of seven officials arrested in Zurich back in May, and is accused of taking millions in bribes over Copa America marketing rights. If found guilty, Esquivel could face 20 years in jail.
