Ex-Fifa executive committee member Amos Adamu, who was slapped with a three-year ban for corruption in the game, has finished serving his ban paving the way for him to return to the game.
The Nigerian, who was a member of the CAF Executive Committee, was banned from all football activities in 2010 for seeking money in return for voting on the 2018 and 2022 World Cup hosting rights.
He was filmed asking undercover reporters for $800,000 and was not allowed to take part in the 2010 votes.
It is not clear if he will be allowed to return to the game but his reputation has been permanently besmirched by the scandal that blighted world football.
Admau, who is free to work in football again after the ban ended on Sunday, said: “I can only thank God it is over. I hold no grudge against anyone.”
Adamu was suspended from all footballing activity by Fifa’s Ethics Committee for three years and fined $10,000.
The move follows allegations that the pair asked for money in return for voting on World Cup hosting rights.
He was one of a number of high-level Fifa officials caught up in corruption allegations around the selection of Russia to host the 2018 World Cup and Qatar as the hosts of the tournament in 2022.
Four former executive members – Slim Aloulou of Tunisia, Mali’s Amadou Diakite, Ahongalu Fusimalohi of Tonga and Botswana’s Ismael Bhamjee – all received sanctions from Fifa.
Bhamjee was banned for four years, Diakite and Fusimalohi for three and Aloulou for two and all four were fined $10,000.
