Costa Rica News – Eduardo Li is no longer making $500,000 a year, the amount he was making for being part of the Executive Committee of FIFA, being part of CONCACAF and belonging to a commission of the player’s statute.
He was arrested in 2015 at a hotel in downtown Zurich, where he traveled to become the new FIFA director. He was there as a representative of CONCACAF. Had his crimes not been found out, he could have earned millions for very little work, maybe a few trips a year to Zurich. However, he has now been sanctioned for life by FIFA, costing him to lose out on at least $500,000 a year in clean money.
If he had not been arrested and prosecuted, he would also have gained a bonus on reaching eight years and later be entitled to a pension. He would be getting $500 a day of service to FIFA on top of various incredible salaries.
The hotel where he and six others were arrested showcased the luxurious life of soccer leaders. The Baur Au Lac cost $580 per night and $630 with breakfast. They also usually travelled in limousines.
