FIFA head Infantino ends dispute over salary with CHF1.5 million deal

FIFA head Infantino ends dispute over salary with CHF1.5 million deal

FIFA President Gianni Infantino has agreed an annual salary of CHF1.5 million with no bonus in 2016.

This is around half the salary of his disgraced predecessor, Sepp Blatter.

But Infantino's salary will be topped up by bonuses such as a chauffeured car, his accommodation paid, plus monthly expenses of CHF2,000.

He will also be eligible for a bonus in 2017 under a new compensation policy being drafted by World football's government body.

The deal backdated to February ends a dispute that saw former FIFA audit panel chairman Domenico Scala resign in protest.
