Tahiti's ousted football boss Reynald Temarii says he has ten days to appeal against a decision by FIFA which bans him for eight years in any role related to football.
Mr Temarii made the comment in an interview from Switzerland with the Depeche de Tahiti newspaper after FIFA found he had breached several FIFA ethics codes by accepting more than US$300,000 from former Asian Football president Mohamed bin Hammam.
While confirming that he accepts the FIFA ruling, Mr Temarii says he will make a decision in the next few days.
He points out that no charge of corruption has been upheld.
He also says he has not been convicted in any court and the sanctions only apply to the sphere of football.
In 2010, Temarii was suspended from all football activity for one year following an investigation into allegations he offered to sell his vote in the World Cup hosting contest to undercover newspaper reporters.
FIFA's ethics committee says Temarii then accepted money from bin Hammam, who was then a member of the FIFA Executive Committee and the AFC President, to cover the cost of an appeal, which he lost.
