Top FIFA doctor Dvorak retires after 22 years

Zurich (AFP) – FIFA’s chief medical officer Jiri Dvorak on Wednesday stepped down from his post after 22 years in the job, football’s world governing body announced.

The 68-year-old is the latest figure from FIFA’s ‘old guard’ to step down from the organisation.

FIFA said it would develop the work Dvorak had accomplished in its future drive for improvements, especially in his developments in the campaign to stamp out doping.

Dvorak is also a senior consultant in neurology at a Zurich clinic. 

A series of directors at FIFA have left their posts since the election of Gianni Infantino at the head of world football’s governing body in February.

Among them are Niclas Ericsson, the man in charge of TV rights sales, aho has been at FIFA since 2003. The Swede will leave at the end of 2016.

Marketing chief Thierry Weil left in the the first week of October.
