Criminal proceedings have been opened against former FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke, according to Swiss investigators.

The 55-year-old Frenchman was put on leave last September after football’s governing body said it had “been made aware of a series of allegations” involving him. He was later banned from football for 12 years.

The Office of the Attorney General of Switzerland said it is now investigating Valcke for “various acts of criminal mismanagement”.
