FIFA's Valcke says he's beyond reproach

PARIS, June 3 (Reuters) - FIFA Secretary General Jerome Valcke said on Wednesday he was not guilty of any corrupt paractice in a $10 million bank transaction under investigation by U.S authorities and saw no reason to stand down.

"I have no reason to say that I shouldn't remain secretary general regarding what's happened in the last days, because I have no responsibility," he told France Info radio.

"I'm beyond reproach and I certainly don't feel guilty. So I don't even have to justify that I'm innocent," he added.
