Former FIFA executive committee member who pleaded guilty to racketeering, wire fraud and money laundering, Chuck Blazer has died.
This was revealed in a statement by his lawyers on Wednesday.
The statement from Blazer’s two lawyers did not provide details or the circumstances of his death.
The New York Times said he had died of rectal cancer, which he had suffered for years.
According to the transcript of his November 2013 guilty plea, Blazer and others in FIFA agreed to accept bribes in the bidding process for the 1998 World Cup in France and the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
