The 62-year-old guided The Pharaohs to their first World Cup in nearly two decades, having also guided them to a first runner-up position in the Africa Cup of Nations in January-February 2017.

According to the report, Cuper pockets £1.30 million annually, an equal amount to what his Colombian counterpart Jose Peckerman takes home.

The figure puts the Argentine 11 in the pay ranks among the coaches expected to lead the 32 teams at the World Cup tournament in Russia next month.

Morocco’s tactician Hevre Renard takes home £681,000, putting him at 21st, while Nigeria’s Gernot Rohr comes at position 24 with an annual pay of £436,600.

Tunisia’s Nabil Maaloul takes home £305,500 annually, placing him at 28th, as Senegal’s Allou Cisse takes home £174,500, meaning he’ll be the least paid coach at the tournament.


At the top of the table, Germany’s Joachim Low leads with an annual pay of £3.31 million, followed by Brazil’s Tite and France’s Didier Deschamps who both get £3.02 million.

The much anticipated World Cup tournament is set to kick off on June 14 as host Russia takes on Saudi Arabia.

Egypt and Morocco will be Africa’s first teams to participate with matches against Uruguay and Iran respectively.
