All four of the top-earning coaches at this year's Africa Cup of Nations have already been knocked out of the tournament. Here is an overview of the highest-paid bosses at the tournament.
Click through the gallery above to see the 10 highest-paid coaches, and what they earn per month, at Afcon 2019.
According to a report by Gini Afric, which was picked up by Moroccan website Maghrib Foot, former Egypt boss Javier Aguirre was highest-paid coach at the tournament after receiving a reported monthly salary of €108 000 (R1.7 million), before he was sacked after the hosts' defeat to South Africa.
Cameroon's Clarence Seedorf sits in second position with a suggested monthly income of €96 000 (R1.5 million), while Morocco's Herve Renard completes the top three with €80 000 (R1.26 million).
Moroccan newspaper Al Massae, though, believe the Frenchman was, in fact, the top-earning coach at Afcon, receiving €120 000 (R1.89 million). It has also been claimed that his assistant Patrice Beaumelle earns €55 000 (R864 000) a month, which would see him sit in fifth position on the list.
Algeria's Djamel Belmadi, who is believed to receive €50 000 (R786 000) a month, and Nigeria's Gernot Rohr (€49 700, R781 000) follow in fourth and fifth places.
Stuart Baxter sits in sixth spot on the list, with local media claiming he receives about R490 000 (€31 000) monthly, which is much less than what his predecessors Ephraim "Shakes" Mashaba and Pitso Mosimane received.
South Africa were knocked out by Nigeria last Wednesday after conceding a last-minute goal by defender William Troost-Ekong, which sent Bafana home with a 2-1 defeat.
This was only the third time since 2000 that the national team had reached the quarter-finals of the African showpiece, with Bafana ending the tournament with two wins – more than in their previous six Afcon tournaments – and three defeats.
It is interesting to note that only three of the 10 highest-paid coaches at the continental spectacle are still left in the competition – you can find the complete top 10 in the gallery above!
Note: It is unclear whether or not the amounts given by Gini Afric are just basic salaries, or salaries including bonus payments.
