Amends Writethru sequenceDavid Chung resigned on Friday as a Federation Internationale de Football Association vice president and a member of its ruling council after an audit of the Oceania confederation he led found "potential irregularities" and funding was cut by soccer's world governing body.

FIFA revealed Saturday that it had found "potential irregularities" in an Auckland construction project championed by outgoing Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) president David Chung. "It has shown potential irregularities in the construction process of the OFC Home of Football".

The review findings, which were not focusing on specific individuals, led to the temporary suspension of funding to OFC, FIFA said in a statement to AFP.

Meanwhile, the OFC executive committee members are to meet tomorrow to discuss the matter and also make an appointment for the top job.

Chung had been FIFA President Gianni Infantino's highest-ranking deputy until Friday's abrupt departure as one of the most powerful figures in world soccer.

The quarterfinals of Oceania Football's Champions League take place this weekend, with last year's finalists Team Wellington hosting Papua New Guinea's Toti City Dwellers.

The Malaysian-born businessman took over as acting president in 2010 when his predecessor Reynald Temarii of Tahiti was implicated in a vote-selling scandal.
