Gianni Infantino, president of Fifa, world soccer’s governing body, is costing less than his disgraced predecessor, Sepp Blatter, according to a report by the Associated Press (AP).
Infantino apparently earned a salary of US$1.9 million and a bonus of US$550,000 in 2018. In 2017, he earned US$1.61 million without a bonus.
In comparison, Blatter earned a basic salary of US$3 million in 2015 with that topped up by a US$11 million contractual bonus for the 2010 World Cup and US$12 million for the 2014 edition.
