The dream of plenty of soccer fans has come true. Jack Warner has quit FIFA.
Currently suspended due to bribery allegations, Warner has resigned as a committee member of the sport's governing body and from his position as head of CONCACAF, FIFA said on Monday. As a result, the investigation into the allegations, which include bribery during the recent presidential election, have been dropped.
FIFA also said that since Warner resigned on his own will, he maintains innocence in regards to the allegations linked to him.
Here are some other stories from Monday:

Barcelona looks set to win the Alexis Sanchez sweepstakes. The Udinese forward is planning on signing with the European champions, and has been given permission by Chile coach Claudio Borghi to leave the national team's camp to finalize his deal with Barcelona. The deal has not been completed, however, as Udinese appears to want an increased offer.
McLeish appointed Aston Villa manager
Aston Villa fans may not approve, but Alex McLeish is officially the club's new manager. Having last coached the Villans' arch-rival in Birmingham City, McLeish signing with the club led to fans protesting outside of Villa Park. McLeish insisted he understands, but said he will win them over by proving he is the man for the job.
Juventus still in pursuit of Aguero
Sergio Aguero has expressed his desire to leave Atletico Madrid this summer, and Juventus is still expressing their interest in him. Aguero is said to want to play for a new club, but he wants to stay in the Spanish capital.
