Delegates to the conference of the Russian Football Union, held today in Moscow, voted for the early resignation of the head of the RFU, Nikolai Tolstoy.
The question of the removal of the Tolstoy was raised at the initiative of the President of the Moscow Football Federation Sergey Anokhin. As reported, the resignation of the head of the RFU could lead to the publication in the media of the details of the contract of the union with the head coach of the Russian football team Fabio Capello. So, it turned out that Capello's salary for 2014 excluding bonuses was 7 million euros. Outside lawyers, having studied the agreement, came to the conclusion that the contract is unbalanced and severely violates the rights of the RFU in favor of Capello.
