Super Eagles technical adviser, Gernot Rohr will be the 24th highest paid coach overall, among all gaffers going to this year’s World Cup, and third on the log among Africa’s five representatives.
Rohr is set to lead the Eagles to their sixth appearance at the World Cup, ahead of which his salary of £436,600 per annum falls behind Egypt’s Argentine handler, Hector Cuper, who earns £1.30m, and Morocco’s Frenchman, Herve Renard on a pay of £681,000.
While Rohr is 24th overall, Cuper is the 11th highest paid and Renard is 21st, but Tunisia’s indigenous tactician, Nabil Maaloul is the fourth best paid among the African qualifiers.
Maloul earns £305,500 per annum, which still puts him ahead of Senegal’s Aliou Cisse, the lowest-paid of all 32 coaches going to Russia this summer, as he gets £174,500 a year.
Germany’s Joachim Low will be the highest earner in Russia, on £3.31m, followed by Tite of Brazil and Didier Deschamps of France, who both take home £3.02m.
Spain’s Julen Lopetegui, Stanislav Cherchesov of Russia and Portugal’s Fernando Santos, Iran’s Carlos Queiroz, Gareth Southgate of England, Jorge Sampaoli of Argentina and Oscar Tabarez complete the top ten.
