UEFA Executive Committee member Zbigniew Boniek has refused to discuss the position of sidelined colleague John Delaney.

The ex-FAI chief executive has retained his €160,000-a-year place on UEFA's board but he is not currently allowed to attend meetings due to the ongoing investigations in Ireland, and huge question marks hang over his future with European football's governing body.

Former Juventus and Poland star Boniek was asked to comment on Delaney's position at the Euro 2020 draw in Bucharest but said: "I prefer to speak about football, not about problems about football."

The UEFA top brass will meet in Switzerland later this week and it's anticipated that the situation with Delaney will be discussed at the summit.
