German Football Association (DFB) president Reinhard Grindel confirmed his resignation on Tuesday following a series of scandals.

The 57-year-old has been under growing pressure following controversies culminating in a newspaper report on Monday that he had accepted the gift of a 6,000 Euro ($6,700) watch from his Ukrainian colleague Hryhoriy Surkis.

In a statement on Tuesday, Grindel confirmed that he had received the gift and that he would end his three-year tenure in charge.  “I am deeply shaken to have to give up my role as DFB president over such an issue,” Grindel said.
