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

ZURICH (AP) After six months of working without a contract, FIFA President Gianni Infantino is set to get a pay deal.

FIFA said Thursday that its newly appointed compensation panel will meet next week to work on setting the salary for Infantino and other top officials.

Infantino has worked without a pay deal since being elected on Feb. 26 to head world soccer's governing body, and described an offer of $2 million without bonuses as insulting.
