FIFA FIFA acting Secretary General Markus Kattner was dismissed from his position with immediate effect on 23 May 2016.

He was removed after FIFA’s internal investigation uncovered breaches of his fiduciary responsibilities in connection with his employment contract. He was accused of paying himself bonuses worth millions of pounds.

The 45-year old German took over as acting General Secretary after Jerome Valcke was sacked for irregularities.

Kattner joined FIFA in 2003 as Director of Finance, becoming Deputy Secretary General in 2007. His salary and bonuses were part of a contract that was unseen by relevant FIFA committees.

Earlier on 13 May 2016, Senegalese UN diplomat Fatma Samba Diouf Samoura was appointed as its first female Secretary General.
