thumbnail Hello,

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.
