Delaney takes 10 per cent pay cut
Soccer:FAI chief executive John Delaney has confirmed that he will take a voluntary 10 per cent pay cut on his €400,000 salary, reducing his wages to €360,000 per annum. Delaney made the announcement at the FAI’s AGM in Letterkenny this afternoon.
Delaney took a 7.2 per cent drop from the €431,687 he had been earning last year and with the association’s finances in poor shape agreed to another reduction in his salary today. The FAI have had some turbulent times of late with several high profile jobs shed.
Packie Bonner was let go as technical director in late 2010, while last month Wim Koevermans left his post as international high performance director to take up the role as head coach of the Indian national team. Koevermans has not been replaced.
It emerged this week that Eoin Hand’s contract as football support services manager is not being renewed and Michael Lynham has also left his post as children’s officer. In 2011, staff numbers at the FAI dropped from 179 to 173.
