This is while the FIFA president is under investigation over a £1.3m payment to the UEFA president, Michel Platini.

The decision has yet to be approved by the adjudicatory chamber of the committee, the Guardian reported.

The entire FIFA organisation has been in a state of disarray after American and Swiss investigators began indicting members of the organisation in May.

Following claims of corruption, Blatter announced in June of his decision to step down as president.

If the suspension is approved, Blatter will be out of office until January 2016.
