A research by Finance Football throws up some interesting names and numbers about how much top coaches leading their teams to the World Cup in Qatar are earning.
With barely four days since the start of the global showpiece, the attention has always been on Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Kylian Mbappe, Neymar and other superstars.
But this article turns the attention to the technical heads of various countries and a look at the Top 10 highest paid coaches ahead of the World Cup tournament in November.
Ghana head coach Otto Addo is conspicuously missing from the list since he comes no close to even the last person on the Top 10 list per the research by Finance Football.
However, the Black Stars trainer is ranked amongst the lowest earners heading to Qatar for the World Cup with a reported £351,994 per annum.
One would have thought that England manager Gareth Southgate or for that matter, Didier Deschamps, manager of defending World Cup champions France, would occupy the top spot.
But it not either of them or Brazil's Tite. Germany's Hansi Flick is on top of the perch earning around £5.6 million annually.
