FIFA's ethics watchdog has recommended a nine-year ban for secretary-general Jerome Valcke over accusations of corruption over the sale of World Cup tickets, one of dozens of allegations involving officials at football's crisis-plagued governing body.Borbely completed his investigation on the day that Valcke's suspension was due to expire and requested that it be extended for a further 45 days pending a final decision in the case, the committee statement said.His report, which alleged that Valcke had violated seven articles of the FIFA code of ethics, including ones on loyalty and conflicts of interest, has been handed to FIFA's chief ethics judge Hans-Joachim Eckert, who will decide on sanctions.
