Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has been ranked as one of the lowest earning coaches of all the coaches at the World Cup in Brazil.

A Daily Mail review of what the managers of the World Cup nations earn showed seven bosses are earning more than £2m per year, who are increasingly not their own nations.

Appiah is ranked 31st of the 32 teams earning £150,000, with only Mexican coach Miguel Herrera earning lower than the Ghanaian.

Ivory Coast’s Tunisian born French national, Sabri Lamouchi, tops the African charts on £618,125 (Sh90, 864,375) with Vahid Halihodzic (Algeria/£600,000), Volker Finke (Cameroon/£235,000), Stephen Keshi (Nigeria/£233,750) and James Kwesi Appiah (£150,000).

Russia coach, Fabio Capello, is the highest paid of the 32 bosses with an annual salary of £6,693,750 (Sh983, 981,250) with Mexico tactician, Miguel Herrera propping the list on £125,000 (Sh18,375,000).

Italy’s Cesare Prandelli (£2.58m a year) is the third biggest earner ahead of Luiz Felipe Scolari of Brazil in fourth (£2.4m), Ottmar Hitzfeld of Switzerland in fifth (£2.2m), Joachim Low of Germany in sixth (£2.1m) and Vicente Del Bosque of holders Spain in seventh (£2.02m).

The five lowest-paid managers are all nationals of their own countries, and in order of smallest pay are Miguel Herrera of Mexico, Kwesi Appiah, Niko Kovac of Croatia (£162,000), Safet Susic of Bosnia (£210,000) and Stephen Keshi.
