With salaries ranging between €2 million and €3 million per year, Netherlands (Louis Van Gaal), Mexico (Gerardo Martino), Argentina (Lionel Scaloni), Qatar (Félix Sánchez Blas) and Portugal (Fernando Santos) head coaches will also have to prove the money they earn.

While the World Cup host Qatar wants to give a good image to world in the field, the other nations have strong records in the history of football and so a reputation to defend.

Spanish manager annual pay could be a surprise for everyone, but Luis Enrique had recently accepted a 25% pay cut (€350,000) that reduced his annual salary to €1.15 million.

The Finance Football ranking shows that Enrique is behind Murat Yakin (Switzerland), Paulo Bento (South Korea), Graham Arnold (Australia), Gregg Berhalter (USA), Roberto Martínez (Belgium) and Kasper Hjulmand (Denmark).

Hervé Renard (Saudi Arabia) and Hajime Moriyasu (Japan) are in the €1 million club too.

With salaries below €1 million, Diego Alonso (Uruguay) and Zlatko Dalić (Croatia) manage teams that might have a word in the tournament.

The 2022 FIFA World Cup is scheduled to take place in Qatar from 21 November to 18 December. This will be the first World Cup ever to be held in the Arab world, and it will be the second World Cup held entirely in Asia after the 2002 tournament was held in South Korea and Japan.
