Suspended FIFA president Sepp Blatter is appealing his 90-day ban from the world’s football leadership.
Sepp Blatter, 79, has been relieved of all duties while a FIFA ethics committee investigates allegations of corruption against his leader.
The Swiss was removed on October 8th along with Secretary-General Jerome Valcke and Vice President Michel Platini.
Michel Platini will challenge the ban “in the right way at the right time.” All three deny any violations.
David Gill, FIFA’s vice-president and vice-president of the FA, asked Marcus Kutner, acting secretary general of FIFA, to request an emergency meeting of the governing body’s executive committee.
The FIFA Ethics Commission has launched its investigation against Sepp Blatter after the Swiss Attorney General opened criminal proceedings against him in September.
Sepp Blatter is accused of signing a contract “unfavorable” for FIFA and making “unfair payment” to Michel Platini.
The ethics committee has also launched an investigation into Michel Platini’s payment of 2m euros, which was made nine years after the 60-year-old Frenchman consulted Sepp Blatter.
Jerome Valcke was already on gardening leave from his position at FIFA following accusations in newspapers last month that the 55-year-old man was involved in a scheme to profit from selling World Cup tickets.
His lawyer said his client was “confident” that he would be completely cleared of “false allegations” when “all the facts come to light.”
Sepp Blatter won a fifth consecutive presidential election in May, but announced he would step down just days after two FIFA investigations by US and Swiss authorities began.
He is due to end his term on February 26th, when a new president will be elected.
Michel Platini, who also heads the European football body UEFA, is one of the favorites in place of Sepp Blatter and still plans to stand up.
