Greg Clarke Resigns FIFA Vice-President

Former Football Association (FA) chairman Greg Clarke has stepped down from as FIFA vice-president with immediate effect.

Clarke resigned as FA chairman earlier this week following offensive comments made to MPs during a Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) Select Committee hearing.

He has also now quit his role as Uefa’s representative on the Fifa council following discussions with Uefa president Aleksander Ceferin.
