Dunga, Brazil’s Soccer Coach, Gets 8 Times Less than British Counterpart

Dunga Soccer coaches of the national teams participating in the South Africa 2010 World Cup all 32 of them are paid handsomely, but Brazilian Dunga, who is in charge of the five-time champion Brazil team, is not even among the 10 best paid.

England's Fabio Capello tops the list with an annual salary of US$ 10 million while Nigeria's Shaibu Amodu, figures at the other extreme with US$ 180.000, according to the Argentina's sports publication Olé.

Capello is followed by Marcelo Lippi from Italy, US$ 3 million and Joachim Low, Germany, US$ 2.3 million.

Uruguay's Washington Tabarez also ranks low in the list with US$ 300.000; Paraguay's Gerardo Martino US$ 360.000 USD; Argentina's Diego Maradona, US$ 1.2 million and Brazil's Dunga, US$ 1.25 million.

South Africa, which is hosting the competition has invested US$ 1.8 million tax free in Brazilian coach Carlos Parreira. This caused an uproar in the country since Parreira makes in a month what the South African president is paid for twelve months. But pride and opportunity for South Africa are above all considerations.

Chile which qualified early for the World Cup and has one of South America's best teams is investing US$ 850.000 annually in Marcelo Bielsa, a former coach of the Argentine national team.

Not necessarily surprising even the austere North Koreans have opened their hand and according to Olé are paying Kim Jong Hun US$ 250,000.
