Jeffrey Webb has been removed from his position as president of The Confederation of North, Central America and the Caribbean Football Association (CONCACAF).

A statement on Thursday announced that FIFA vice president Webb had been “provisionally dismissed”, along with fellow CONCACAF official Eduardo Li, in the wake of the corruption scandal surrounding FIFA.

On Wednesday, Webb and Li were named as two of eight FIFA officials arrested amid allegations of racketeering, conspiracy and corruption.

Previous CONCACAF vice president Alfredo Hawit has been named as president in Webb’s stead.

Hawit said: “While we are profoundly disappointed by the allegations made by authorities that again, CONCACAF has been the victim of fraud, we remain committed to CONCACAF’s goal to develop, promote and manage the game of soccer.

“We have now taken the appropriate steps to maintain our operations and continue to deliver on our commitments to all of our constituents, including our fans, members, as well as commercial and broadcast partners.

“We also continue to cooperate with the ongoing investigation by governmental authorities, which have not placed any restrictions on our ongoing activities.”
