Criminal proceedings have been opened into Paris St-Germain’s chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi by Swiss prosecutors.
The proceedings are connected to an ongoing investigation into former Fifa secretary general Jerome Valcke, and relate to the sale of World Cup TV rights to BeInSports, of which Al-Khelaifi is chief executive.
Last year, The Office of the Attorney General of Switzerland said it was investigating Valcke for “various acts of criminal mismanagement”.
In a statement on Thursday, it said the new proceedings involving Al-Khelaifi had been “opened on the basis” of its findings.
