Warner, 72, is one of the key defendants in a US investigation into world football that has rocked its governing body.

The former Caribbean federation president "was found to have committed many and various acts of misconduct continuously and repeatedly during his time as an official in different high-ranking and influential positions at FIFA and CONCACAF" said the Ethics Committee statement.

Warner is the second FIFA official to be suspended for life after American Chuck Blazer, 70, the one-time powerbroker of North American football who turned whistleblower for the FBI. Warner and Blazer were executive committee members of world football's governing body.
