Franz Beckenbauer has been provisionally banned from all footballing activities by Fifa for 90 days.

World football’s governing body says the Germany World Cup winning player and coach “failed to co-operate” with its inquiry into the 2018 and 2022 World Cup bidding process.

According to Fifa, Beckenbauer ignored “repeated requests” to assist with an independent investigation into the bidding process for the 2018 and 2022 tournament.

The 68-year-old was asked to help with a Fifa ethics investigation led by lawyer Michael Garcia.

The German, currently a honorary president at Bayern Munich, was part of the executive committee that voted to award the tournaments to Russia and Qatar in 2018 and 2022 respectively.

“I politely requested a meeting in which we could talk about the matter in German. That was apparently not desired. That aside, I wouldn’t be able to contribute anything to clear up the matter anyway,” Beckenbauer said.

Fifa said the the ex-Olympique de Marseilles and Bayern boss was asked to supply answers to written questions in both English and German.

In a statement, Fifa said: “The apparent breach relates to Mr Beckenbauer’s failure to co-operate with an ethics committee investigation despite repeated requests for his assistance.

“The case is now the subject of formal investigation proceedings being conducted by investigatory chamber member Vanessa Allard as chief of the investigation.”
