FIFA have appointed former marketing chief Jerome Valcke as their new general secretary.

The decision, unanimously agreed by the executive committee of football´s world governing body on Wednesday and confirmed by senior FIFA sources, is surprising as Valcke was dismissed then reinstated over the legal dispute with MasterCard.

Valcke will assume the responsibilities of a chief executive and, as a result, become one of the most powerful figures in the game, in charge of all business and football matters at FIFA.
