FIFA president, Sepp Blatter, has been provisionally suspended for 90 days.
The world football governing body’s ethics committee met after the Swiss attorney general opened criminal proceedings against Blatter in September.
The 79-year-old was accused of signing a contract not favourable to FIFA as well as making a “disloyal payment” to UEFA president Michel Platini, who wants to succeed him.
They both denied any wrongdoing.
A final decision will be made by Hans Joachim Eckhert, the head of FIFA’s ethics adjudicatory chamber on Friday.
No decision has been made on whether to suspend Platini.
