With less than 100 days to go to FIFA Confederations Cup 2017, Finance Football presents the ranking of salaries of national head coaches who will be attending the competition in Russia. Fernando Santos may even have won the European Championship for Portugal, but he is not the best paid.
Joachim Löw, the German coach since 2006 and the World Champion in 2014, will be the highest-paid coach. The German receives 3.2 million euros per year, a salary wich, nevertheless, is well below those practiced in the main European clubs.
In the role of host head coach, Stanislav Cherchesov earns an annual income of 2.6 million euros from the Russian Football Federation. His predecessor, Leonid Slutsky, did not receive any fixed remuneration when he took the Russian national team to the European Championship 2016.
A competition that was won by Portugal, led by Fernando Santos. The Portuguese coach recently renewed the contract with the Portuguese Football Federation. Santos is paid in about 2.5 million euros per year for services that FPF hires to his company.
Next in the list are the American head coaches: Juan Carlos Osorio (Mexico) and Juan Antonio Pizzi (Chile) earn 1.05 million and 900 thousand euros per month, respectively. They were not even the best paid coaches in the Copa America Centenario 2016.
