The Frenchman has not been formally dismissed but Blatter is standing down in February and Valcke had already suggested he would probably go at that time as well.The allegations are the latest against Valcke as the organization, and his own behavior, came under scrutiny in recent years.Within months of that settlement, Valcke was not only back at FIFA but was at the helm of the administration as general secretary, answering only to Blatter.It was not long before reports suggested Valcke was the official who had signed off the payment, which the DOJ linked to Warner's vote for South Africa to host the 2010 World Cup.Valcke initially denied he had authorized the payment, saying he had no power to do so, but later admitted he had signed off, albeit without doing anything wrong.
