FAI CEO John Delaney to announce voluntary pay cut at AGM

The CEO's salary has come under close scrutiny in recent times and he will respond in this weekend's AGM
FAI CEO John Delaney is expected to announce a voluntary pay cut to his salary at the organisation's AGM this Saturday in Donegal.

Delaney's €400,000 pay packet has been the cause of much consternation in Irish football, being four times the amount a club receives for winning the Airtricity Premier Division.

It is also twice the pay of An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny, and €151,000 more than that of the President of Ireland, Michael D Higgins.

Delaney cut his salary by 7.2 per cent in 2011 but that figure is still below the average cut across the FAI, which is 13.3%.

He will tell 250 delegates of his decision on Saturday afternoon.
