CONCACAF general secretary Chuck Blazer will stand down from his post at the end of this year.

Blazer, who was a whistle-blower in the recent FIFA corruption scandal in the Caribbean but has also had his finances probed by the FBI, says he wants to "pursue other career opportunities in the burgeoning industry of international football".
