JOHANNESBURG - The investigatory chamber of Fifa's Ethics Committee has recommended that former executives Luis Bedoya and Sergio Jadue, be banned from football for life.

Bedoya and Jadue pleaded guilty to charges of racketeering and wire fraud conspiracies late last year.

Both officials subsequently stepped down from their positions in Fifa and Conmebol federation.

The former Colombian and Chilean Football Association executives could face life bans from all football related activities if the committee finds them guilty of corruption.

Both waived indictments and pleaded guilty two-counts of racketeering and wire fraud conspiracies last year.

The ethics committee has been urged to impose the sanctions following the conclusion of a report by the governing body's investigatory chamber.

The South American football bosses are still presumed innocent, pending the committee's decision.
