Vincent Labrune will receive 1.2 million euros per year as head of the League and its commercial company

Some time ago, the members of the Board of Directors of the Professional Football League (LFP) received the remuneration of their leaders in the framework of the creation of their commercial company made possible by the arrival of the investment fund CVC and the 1.5 billion euros against 13% of the capital of this subsidiary of the LFP.

Thus, Vincent Labrune, the president of the entity and now also that of his trading company, received, according to several concordant sources, a bonus of 3 million euros for the completion of the operation with CVC. Also awarded were Arnaud Rouger and Sébastien Cazali, general manager and administrative and financial director of the League, respectively.

Important clarification, according to the administrators, these bonuses do not come from the sums received by the clubs but from a percentage of the remuneration paid by CVC to the two banks, Lazard and Centerview, and to the law firm, which led the negotiations.

His annual salary as president of the League was 420,000 euros

Annually, Vincent Labrune will now collect a salary of 1.2 million euros for his dual role. As a reminder, his emoluments as president of the League brought him 420,000 euros per year. “These sums are important, but in this type of operation we can reach these amounts”we are entrusted by someone familiar with these files.

A study carried out for the League Board by Eghon Zender, a global management consultancy and executive recruitment company, shows that this amount places Vincent Labrune in the lower pay range of his European counterparts.
