Newly-elected Gianni Infantino is standing firm against the FIFA administration's determination that he is only an ambassadorial president, declaring he will be the ultimate boss of world football.The AP reported last week that FIFA's three-man remuneration committee decided presidents will now be paid less than the secretary general. During a visit to Cardiff for a meeting of football's law-making body, Infantino said he does not know his FIFA salary yet.A priority for the former UEFA general secretary is hiring someone for that role at FIFA, replacing Jerome Valcke, fired in January over a ticketing and TV rights scandal as well as expenses abuses.Infantino is still getting accustomed to the focus on the FIFA president, having only stood in the Feb. 26 election because UEFA President Michel Platini was suspended from world football.
