FIFA president Gianni Infantino has responded to claims surrounding his salary by saying he would publish details of payments in due course.

"I have promised that I will also put my cards on the table," he was quoted as saying in Swiss media Sunday.

"I will communicate (the salary contract) transparently as soon I have signed it. You will see it will be less than 2 million (Swiss) francs (dollars)."

Infantino, who on Sunday was 100 days in office, said his "opponents want to portray me as avaricious; that is absurd."

His comments follow a report by Germany's Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) that Infantino told the new FIFA Council he rejected a salary proposal of 2 million Swiss francs as "insulting."

Infantino also rejected allegations he ordered audio files of the council meeting to be deleted. An "illegal copy" had been discovered but "the original is in good hands and is available to the authorities concerned," he said.
