Chuck Blazer not fired, survives sacking attempt: Concacaf.
Concacaf said Blazer, who made bribery allegations against FIFA, has survived an attempt to sack him.
Lisle Austin, acting president of Concacaf, had sent Blazer a letter saying he was "terminated as general secretary with immediate effect".
But Concacaf's executive committee said the sacking was "unauthorized".
Concacaf said in a statement that Austin does not have the authority to fire Blazer, The BBC reports.
"Today, an unauthorized declaration was made by Lisle Austin attempting to remove Chuck Blazer as general secretary of Concacaf," the statement said.
"This attempted action was taken without any authority. Under the Concacaf statutes, jurisdiction over the general secretary rests solely with the executive committee which has taken no action," it said.
"Chuck Blazer continues as Concacaf general secretary and with the full authority of his office," the statement added.
Blazer, an American who is also a member of FIFA's executive committee, accused fellow executives Jack Warner and Mohamed bin Hammam of offering financial incentives to Caribbean Football Union (CFU) members, which led to the pair being banned. (ANI)
