Highest Paid World Cup Managers: England Boss Second On List

Posted by

Roy gets 28 times more than Mexico’s manager, but not as much as the man he replaced as Three Lions boss.

England boss Roy Hodgson will be the second highest paid football manager at this summer’s World Cup in Brazil.

The Daily Mail have released a full list of what each national team boss is paid.

Only Russia’s Fabio Capello, who apparently earns £6,693,750 per year, is on more than Hodgson, whose salary is £3.5m.

Italy’s Cesare Prandelli, Brazil’s Luiz Felipe Scolari, Switzerland’s Ottmar Hitzfeld, Germany’s Joachim Low and Spain head coach Vicente del Bosque all earn in excess of £2m.

At the other end of the scale is Mexico boss Miguel Herrera, who is on £125,000.

Somewhat surprising, Argentina’s Alejandro Sabella is the bottom half of the pay table. The 59-year-old is the 11th lowest paid boss, earning £487,000 per year.

Ivory Coast boss Sabri Lamouchi, who is eighth on the list, earns £618,125 – 795 times the average annual pay of the African country, which is £778 per year – £14.96 per week.

The accumulative salaries of the 32 World Cup bosses add up to £39.1m, which averages out at £1.2m.
