Gregorio told Swiss talk show Schawinski: “The Fifa president, secretary general and correspondences executive are all going in an auto. Who’s driving? The police.”
Fifa reported in an announcement that De Gregorio had “surrendered his office”.
In any case, the BBC comprehends he was requested that leave by president Sepp Blatter.
Blatter himself reported recently that he would remain down as Fifa president taking after another race, only two days subsequent to winning re-decision for a fifth term.
He is then understood to have confronted Blatter and asked him whether he agreed with the views expressed by Stohlker.
Fifa said in its statement that De Gregorio would remain with the organisation on a consultancy basis until the end of the year.
