FIFA said Thursday that they are still unaware of the details concerning Confederation of African Football (CAF) president Ahmed Ahmed, insisting that they are not in a position to make a comment concerning the matter.

Ahmad remains detained Thursday and is being questioned by the French authorities in relation to corruption allegations related to his mandate as president of the CAF.

"FIFA is asking the French authorities for any information that might be relevant to investigations taking place within its ethics committee," said a statement issued Thursday.

FIFA president Gianni Infantino added Thursday that the world governing body for football cannot accept any kind of corruption.

"FIFA is fully committed to eradicating all forms of wrongdoing at any level in football," the governing body said.

"Anyone found to have committed illicit or illegal acts has no place in football.

"FIFA is now clean from the scandals that tarnished its reputation," it added.
