PSL: Coaches rolling in cash

2011-07-18 00:00

JOHANNESBURG — A survey has found that the highest paid coach in the Premier Soccer League is on a package of about R6 million a year — he earns about R500 000 per month.

While none of the club bosses nor coaches spoke willingly on the subject, coaches at the 16 premiership clubs can be divided into four categories. Topping the list are the four foreign coaches of Mamelodi Sundowns, Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates and Ajax Cape Town, who in no particular order earn between R350 000 to R500 000 per month due to the fact that they calculate their packages in euros and dollars. These packages include luxury, three-bedroom townhouses, a luxury sedan and win bonuses. — Sport24.
