French minister shocked by Domenech bonuses
French media, citing figures from the French Football Federation, reported that Domenech had earned 826,222 euros in bonuses over a two-year period following France's qualification for next year's finals in South Africa.
France only secured their place at the finals after a blatant handball by Thierry Henry led to an aggregate winning goal in their European zone play-off against Ireland.
Asked whether she found it shocking to hear what Domenech had earned, Lagarde told French radio station Radio Classique on Tuesday: "Well, yes."
"I come from the world of amateur sport where you sweat it out and pay for your own shirt," added Lagarde, a former synchronised swimmer.
"I think that too much money in sport is not a good thing."
Lagarde had earlier suggested the game against Ireland should be replayed. France beat Ireland 2-1 on aggregate in last month's playoff after the controversial 1-1 draw in the return leg.
Ireland's requests for a replay and to be given a 33rd place at the World Cup were both rejected by world governing body FIFA.
