It pays to be a soccer coach

Forget about studying hard to get that first degree, playing soccer is the way to go.  Today’s Straits Times reveal the pay of 16 national coach whose country is involve in the upcoming World Cup 2006.  Out of the 16 countries featured, the lowest paid coach (if we disregard the special case of Ukraine’s coach as he cannot get paid if he want to hold on to his Member of Parliament seat) of Ivory Coast is already a stunning S$270,000 per year. 12 out of the 16 is in the million dollar club (which means their earning per year is more than S$1 million).  And the highest?  England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson earns an unthinkable S$12 million.

So why do we need that degree again?

P.S. Its 6 days till the kick off.
