Cape Town - The FIFA Emergency Committee decided to dismiss Jerome Valcke from his position as Secretary General of the football governing body.

"The FIFA Emergency Committee decided, on 9 January 2016, to dismiss Jerome Valcke from the position of FIFA Secretary General with immediate effect. Jerome Valcke is therefore no longer the Secretary General of FIFA," FIFA said in a statement on their website.

"The employment relationship between FIFA and Jerome Valcke has also been terminated.

"Jerome Valcke was provisionally released from his duties as Secretary General on 17 September 2015, and on 7 January 2016, formal adjudicatory proceedings were opened against him by the adjudicatory chamber of the FIFA Ethics Committee chaired by Hans-Joachim Eckert.

"The provisional suspension imposed on Jerome Valcke on 8 October 2015 and extended on 6 January 2016 continues to be valid.
