FIFA has given Liberian official, Musa Bility, a 10-year ban from football for financial offences, the sport’s world governing body said on Wednesday.
Bility, a member of the African Confederation (CAF) executive committee and former president of the Liberian federation (LFA), was found guilty of misappropriating FIFA’s funds, according to the organisation.
Bility was also fined 500,000 Swiss francs ($507,300).
Earlier this week, Bility had said he would contest FIFA’s decision to take oversight of the operational management of CAF from Aug 1 to January 31 2020.
