New FIFA President Gianni Infantino has declared FIFA's corruption crisis over, but that hasn't stopped him from facing corruption allegations.
Domenico Scala, who was in charge of FIFA's audit and compliance committee, resigned in protest Saturday in response to reforms passed at the recent FIFA congress.
The reforms gave FIFA's ruling council, which is headed by Infantino, the power to hire and fire the heads of independent committees like ethics, governance and finance. This includes Scala's former position.
