Reports have revealed how UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin increased his salary by 450,000 euros – which is over $540,000 – in the 2019-2020 season despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

Amid the pandemic, UEFA cut its costs and, in May-July, the organization’s leadership decreased its salaries by 20 percent.
