Your opinion of Hector Cuper isn’t important anymore, because this man is ranked the 11th best paid coach in World Cup 2018, and that means that he’s ballin’ a lotta cash (it also means that he’s really good).
A report released by a Spanish newspaper stated that Cuper’s annual salary is a whopping 1.5 million Euros. Compared to the earnings of other football managers in the World Cup, Cuper gets paid more than half of the national teams’ managers in the tournament (32 teams).
The highest paid coach is Germany’s Joachim Low, with an amount of 3.85 million Euros. The second highest is Tite who is heading Brazil’s team with a whopping 3.5 million euros. On the other hand, Aliou Cissé, the coach of Senegal, receives 200,000 Euros; making him the lowest paid.
Should we believe in the man already, and that he’s taking us all the way to the top? Or, maybe money was never an indication of managerial skill? Just the hype and glam of being a retired Argentine player is what got him there? Unfortunately, we have to let the FIFA World Cup decide which it is.
Cuper and our Egyptian team are preparing themselves for the upcoming matches at their camp in Italy and will surely make us all proud very soon.
