The Pharaohs of Egypt are paying their Argentine manager over a million pounds yearly – a figure that puts him streets ahead of the other African managers heading to Russia.

 A report published by the U.K. Daily Mirror said the 62-year-old thus ranks 11th overall on the pay list of 32 World Cup bound managers.

 Cuper steered The Pharaohs to their first World Cup in nearly two decades. In January-February 2017, he also guided them to a first runner-up position in the Africa Cup of Nations held in Gabon, the team lost to Cameroon in the final.

 The least paid African manager is Senegal’s Aliou Cisse – a former captain turned trainer, he takes home £174,500, which make him the least paid coach at the tournament.

 Sandwiching the two are Morocco’s Hevre Renard who takes home £681,000, (overall ranking 21st,) 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.
