Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi, is the 28th highest-paid manager at this year’s World Cup.

A MailSport review of what the 32 managers of the World Cup nations earn shows that Keshi is on a salary of £233,750 per annum.

The Big Boss is among the five lowest-paid managers who are all nationals of their own countries. In the order of smallest pay are Miguel Herrera of Mexico (£125,000 per year), James Kwesi Appiah of Ghana (£150,000), Niko Kovac of Croatia (£162,000) and Safet Susic of Bosnia (£210,000)

Sabri Lamouchi of the Ivory Coast is Africa’s highest-earning coach. A Frenchman of Tunisian descent, Lamouchi earns the salary that is most extreme, compared with the average wage in his country of employment.


His annual pay of £618,125 is a staggering 795 times as much as the average annual pay of £778 per year in the Ivory Coast — or £14.96 per week.

Vahid Halilodzic, coach of Algeria, and Volker Finke of Cameroon are next behind Lamouchi on the Africa World Cup coaches pay list on a salary of £600,000 and £235,000 respectively.

Outside Africa, Fabio Capello, Russia’s coach, tops the coaches pay list on a salary of almost £7m a year while the lowest-earning coach is Miguel Herrera of Mexico on a salary of £125,000 per year.


The combined annual salaries of the 32 bosses is £39.1m, making the average pay £1.2m.
