Benni McCarthy vs Stuart Baxter | who is the highest paid

Even though they don't always make as much as the best players in the PSL, some of South Africa's best football coaches still make a lot of money.

Details about a PSL coach's contract seem to be in the news every time there is a game. There are clauses, guarantees, and bonuses that are hard to understand. If the team is doing well, the coach will be given more time. If the team is not doing well, the coach will be fired right away.

In the DStv Premiership on Wednesday night, Kaizer Chiefs and AmaZulu FC tied 1-1 at the FNB stadium. The team from KZN came back from being down a goal to tie with Amakhosi. Kaizer Chiefs and AmaZulu FC have two of the best-paid coaches in the country. Without further ado, let's look at how much they make.

1. Benni McCarthy

Benni McCarthy made a lot of money as a football player because he got to play for some of the best teams in the world. Now a coach, the forward who used to play for Blackburn Rovers FC and Orlando Pirates is still making a lot of money.

Sources say that McCarthy makes R600,000 a year as the head coach of AmaZulu FC. Last year, in his first season as Usuthu's coach, he led the team to a second-place finish and was named the PSL coach of the season.

2. Stuart Baxter

He is one of South Africa's most experienced and successful football coaches. Stuart Baxter was the last person to lead Kaizer Chiefs to a trophy in the 2014–15 season. He is now in his second stint with the team. Kaizer Motaung gave the 68-year-old the job of bringing back the glory days at Naturena.

Baxter has been doing well as of late. In their last five games, they have won three and tied two. Sources say that Baxter makes R850 000 per month at Kaizer Chiefs right now. He also makes R100,000 more than his close competitor, Manqoba Mngqithi.
