World Cup Manager Salaries Are Pretty Shocking, Particularly Fabio Capello's

Being a top-level football manager is generally a profitable endeavor, but not all salaries are created equal. In fact, the income disparity among bosses at the 2014 World Cup is actually pretty shocking.

Per the Daily Mail, these are the salaries of every manager at this year's tournament:


Some notes:

  • Russia's Fabio Capello makes over 50x Mexico's Miguel Herrera. UpdateThe latter survived the group stage, the former didn't.
  • Roy Hodgson is the second-highest compensated manager, but makes just barely half of Capello's wages.
  • Defending World Cup and Euro (twice) winner Vicente del Bosque clocks in at seventh, behind Luiz Felipe Scolari and five managers who have never won either.
  • Argentina's Alejandro Sabella is shockingly far down the list—he's the 22nd-highest paid manager despite leading one of the tournament favourites.
