The president of the Brazilian Football Federation has been fired

 


Amid tensions over the Copa America , allegations of rape have surfaced against the president of the Brazilian Football Federation.  He has been suspended for 30 days for this allegation.

A statement from the Brazilian Football Federation said Caboclo had been suspended for 30 days over allegations of rape.  The allegations are being investigated and if found guilty, the ban could be extended.

Caboclo, however, has denied the allegations.  A CBF worker has already accused him of rape.

After his dismissal, Antonio Nanes will serve as president of the Brazilian Football Federation for 30 days.
