FIFA's new president Gianni Infantino is using the authoritarian tactics of ex-leader Sepp Blatter, a top reform advocate told AFP Sunday, after the resignation of FIFA's audit chief. Mark Pieth, a Swiss criminal law professor who has led reform drives at FIFA, made the comments after the head of the world body's independent audit committee, Domenico Scala, quit in protest at what he called an attack on FIFA's reforms.Pieth, who is close to Scala, also indicated that the FIFA boss pushed Scala to resign following a dispute over Infantino's proposed salary.According to Pieth, who did not disclose his source of information, Infantino is upset that FIFA's remuneration committee determined his annual salary at 2 million Swiss francs ($2 million) without the prospect of a bonus.
