Deputy Secretary-General Markus Kattner dismissed with immediate effect, says footballing body

FIFA announced that it dismissed its deputy secretary-general, Markus Kattner, on Monday evening.

The world footballing body said its firing of the 45-year-old German-Swiss administrator was due to "breaches of his fiduciary responsibilities in connection with his employment contract".

"Kattner has been dismissed from his position effective immediately," FIFA said in a statement.

FIFA said it would not comment further on the investigation.

Kattner had replaced Jerome Valcke, who himself was suspended from his FIFA duties earlier this year.
