ZURICH, Aug 17: FIFA ethics prosecutors want a six-year ban for a former South Africa Football Association president in a case of fixed friendlies played by the 2010 World Cup host.

FIFA's ethics committee says investigators also asked for life bans imposed on a Zimbabwean official and a coach from Togo.

In previous verdicts, four SAFA officials were banned for up to six years for links to fixed 2010 World Cup warm-ups where referees were appointed by Singaporean match-fixer Wilson Raj Perumal.

FIFA prosecutors now recommend sanctions against three more men in final investigation reports sent to ethics judges.

They are: former SAFA president Kirsten Nematandani, Jonathan Musavengana of Zimbabwe and Bana Tchanile of Togo.

Tchanile was previously banned for taking a fake Togo team to play in Bahrain in 2010.
