Chinese Super League Wages Reveal Cannavaro As One Of The World's Top Paid Managers

Chinese Super League Wages Reveal Cannavaro As One Of The World's Top Paid Managers

Fabio Cannavaro was one of the best centre backs of all time and the last defender to win the Ballon d'Or. Now he's a barely tested manager but has still managed to become one of the best paid in the world, working in China.

Being a great player will not guarantee your success as a manager. Sure Pep Guardiola has proved that it can happen but Roy Keane on the other hand didn't exactly have a great time as boss of Ipswich.

Further to that Jose Mourinho's football career is hardly famed for being one of the best players on the planet but a quick look at what he's achieved as a manager would be the envy of most.

Fabio Cannavaro was one of the best centre backs at least of his generation and has now moved onto management, getting his break first in Dubai and then subsequently in China.

He is now in charge of Guangzhou Evergrande, with the new season actually starting on Friday. Managers' wages in the Chinese Super League have been released and the Italian has been revealed as the league's top earner:

It's incredible that on €12 million a year the Italian is one of the highest paid managers in the world and as per Business Insider's article from October 2017 he's actually the fourth highest.

China national team manager Marcello Lippi, who managed Cannavaro during the World Cup success 2010, is the highest paid manager in the world on a reported £18 million-a-year.

After Lippi comes Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho and that's followed by Cannavaro. When the article was written it was Carlo Ancelotti and Andre Villas-Boas at the time but those two are now out of work.

It's just incredible how much money is in the league in the Far East.
