PARIS (AFP) - Fifa secretary general Jerome Valcke said Wednesday he felt no guilt over his involvement in a $10 million transfer to a disgraced football official now being investigated by US authorities.

Valcke also said he would not resign straight away because of the corruption scandal engulfing the football's world body but could leave when a new president takes over from Sepp Blatter.

"I have nothing to blame myself for and I certainly do not feel guilty so I do not even have to justify my innocence," the French official told the France Info radio station in an interview.
