Warner quits FIFA post

Warner, the influential head of the Caribbean, North and Central American federation (CONCACAF), was suspended last month over claims he conspired with Asian football chief Mohamed bin Hammam to buy votes in an attempt to topple FIFA supremo Sepp Blatter in the presidential election earlier this month.

“As a consequence of Mr Warner’s resignation, all ethics committee procedures against him have been closed and the presumption of innocence is maintained,” said a FIFA statement.

“Jack A Warner has informed FIFA about his resignation from his posts in international football,” the FIFA statement said.

“FIFA regrets the turn of events that have led to Mr Warner’s decision.”
