FIFA on Tuesday admitted that it had processed a $10 million payment from South Africa to a disgraced football official but denied the world body's secretary general Jerome Valcke was involved. FIFA said a former finance committee chief who died last year, Argentine Julio Grondona, authorised the 2008 payment which went to Jack Warner. Warner, one of 14 people facing corruption charges in the United States over $150 million in bribes, was at the time Grondona's deputy on the finance committee.
