Former FIFA secretary-general Jerome Valcke has appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport against his 10-year ban from football, the tribunal said Tuesday.In September, FIFA's ethics committee opened a new investigation into Blatter, Valcke and former finance director Markus Kattner for possible ethics violations which included bribery and corruption.CAS has already rejected appeals from Blatter and former European football boss Michel Platini, who was also embroiled in the scandal, although in the latter's case it cut the ban from six years to four.Within months of that settlement, Valcke was not only back at FIFA but was at the helm of the administration as secretary general, answering directly to Blatter.
