Despite being born in Switzerland, Infantino considers himself Italian, he became the first Italian to be named as Fifa president.

The 52-year-old is a prominent figure in football and one of the key decision-makers when it comes to the World Cup.

And the World Cup now ends with the huge final of Argentina vs France.

Who is Fifa president Gianni Infantino?

Born in Switzerland, Infantino had Italian parents and has four siblings.

He studied law at university and worked as Secretary General of the International Center for Sports Studies in Neuchatel, utilising his language skills as he is fluent in Italian, English, French and German.

The now- Fifa president worked a Uefa in 2000 and worked his way up over nine years before being promoted to Secretary General.

He is most notable for introducing Video Assistant Referee to football and has plans to expand the World Cup in the future to allow up to 40 teams in the tournament.

He was elected as president in 2016 and re-elected in 2019.

What is his net worth?

His predecessor Blatter was widely reported to be earning £2.2million-a-year but once Infantino was named president, he took a pay-cut.

The Italian earns £1.16m-a-year and refused to take a bonus payment in his first year as president.

His net worth is widely reported to be $1.5m, around £1.3m, as the Fifa president also has all expenses paid for by the footballing organisation alongside a chauffeured car and paid lodgings.
