FIFA pay panel meets next week to set Infantino's salary

25 August 2016, 14:43

Zurich — FIFA says its compensation panel which must set President Gianni Infantino's salary will meet next week.

Infantino has worked without a salary deal since being elected six months ago to head world soccer's governing body, and described a $2 million offer as insulting.

The pay dispute increased tension between Infantino and then-FIFA audit committee chairman Domenico Scala, who resigned in protest in May.

FIFA says the compensation panel chaired by Scala's replacement, Slovenian auditor Tomaz Vesel, will meet Wednesday.

The panel includes FIFA finance committee chairman Issa Hayatou and a newly appointed third member. FIFA says that is German lawyer Peter Braun, a partner in the Frankfurt office of international law firm Dentons.

The panel must also agree annual pay for FIFA secretary general Fatma Samoura and FIFA Council members.
