Salaries of all 32 coaches at the FIFA World Cup - Top three highest paid knocked out in Group Stage

Fabio Capello is the highest paid coach at the World Cup.

How much do the coaches of all 32 World Cup teams earn per year? 

In a shocking revelation, the highest paid manager at the World Cup – Russia coach Fabio Capello – earns almost twice as much as the next best paid manager – England’s Roy Hodgson.

Capello earns £6.7m per year (approximately US $11.4 million) while Hodgson earns close to £3.5m (approximately US $5.9 million) per year.

Italy’s Cesare Prandelli is the second Italian in the top three with a salary of £2.58m per year (approximately US $4.4 million).

None of these three teams they managed have qualified for the Round of 16. 

In all, 19 coaches earn at least $1 million per year. Out of the top 10 coaches, only 5 of their teams have qualified for the knockout stages. 

Miguel Herrera, arguably the most passionate coach at the World Cup, earns a paltry $209K per year according to the Daily Mail. In other words, Capello earns more than 50 times what Herrera earns in a year!
