FIFA today banned Guatemala’s former football chief Brayan Jimenez for life over corruption, bribery and other offences, making him the latest former executive thrown out of the sport in disgrace.

A statement from the judicial arm of FIFA’s ethics committee in Zurich said Jimenez was “banned for life from all football-related activities at national and international level.

Jimenez last year pleaded guilty to racketeering and wire fraud conspiracies in a US court after accepting bribes worth several hundred thousand dollars in exchange for media and marketing rights for key matches.

He was arrested while drunk in a posh Guatemala City suburb in January of last year and extradited to the United States.
