Ghana coach among lowly paid coaches for World Cup
Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac will be one of the lowest paid coaches at the 2010 Fifa World Cup finals in South Africa next month.
The Serb is ranked 30th and comes only ahead of Algeria’s coach Rabah Saadane and Kim Jong Hung of Korea DPR.
Rajeva, on a US$ 540,000 annual salary, is far behind the expatriates leading African countries at the mundial.
Ivory Coast will pay Swede Sven-Goran Eriksson a staggering US$ 2 million for just two months work.
This means, Rajevac will have to work well over three-and-half years meet Eriksson’s earnings.
Nigeria’s Lars Lagerback is being paid US$ 1.75 million until the end of the World Cup. Carlos Alberto Parreira is receiving US$ 1.25 million per year by the hosts.
Frenchman Paul Le Guen, in-charge of Cameroon, is taking home $960,000 per year.
Rajevac will however receive more cash as compared to Algeria’s Rabah Saadane who is on a $360,000 per year deal.
England coach, Fabio Capello leads the pack with $7m followed by Italy’s Marcello Lippi on $2.458m and Germany’s Joachim Leow tied with Sven-Goran Eriksson on US$ 2m.
The least paid coach, Kim Jong Hung of Korea DPR will be receiving a meager US$ 142 000.
