Fifa has banned ex-president Sepp Blatter from football until 2028 after giving him a new suspension of six years and eight months.
Former Fifa general secretary Jerome Valcke has received a similar ban, with both also being fined £780,000.
The punishments were for “various violations” of Fifa’s code of ethics.
The new bans start when the current suspensions of 85-year-old Blatter and Valcke, 60, end in October 2021 and October 2025 respectively.
A Fifa statement said: “The investigations into Messrs Blatter and Valcke covered various charges, in particular concerning bonus payments in relation to Fifa competitions that were paid to top Fifa management officials, various amendments and extensions of employment contracts, as well as reimbursement by Fifa of private legal costs in the case of Mr Valcke.”
Blatter was originally banned by Fifa for eight years, later reduced to six, over ethics breaches when he was found to have made a £1.3m “disloyal payment” to ex-Uefa boss Michel Platini.
His appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas) was rejected in December 2016.
Valcke, whose initial ban was reduced from 12 to 10 years, lost an appeal to CAS in July 2018 over his decade-long ban from football.
