Benni McCarthy now earns more than Percy Tau, even more than Pitso Mosimane, and more than any South African has ever been paid before in football.
McCarthy is now the highest earner in the history of SA football.
Meaning, his current salary at Manchester United is greater than any amount any SA coach or player has ever been paid.
Since signing on as the striker and attack coach for Manchester United, McCarthy’s salary has multiplied by five.
He now earns an incredible R802 000 a week, according to SA Rich and Famous. This equates to around R3.2 MILLION a month, bettering even Tau and Mosimane’s salaries.
At AmaZulu, McCarthy earned around R600 000 a month. He now makes R200 000 more than this is just one week!
As reported by The South African, Tau takes home around R1.5 MILLION a month.
Based on these figures, McCarthy is making almost double what Tau is. We also reported his monthly earnings of R1.7 MILLION a month.
To put into perspective just how much McCarthy is earning, he takes home as much money as Mosimane and Tau put together.
He is proving to be worth every cent. McCarthy inspired United to a fourth successive victory in the English Premier League this weekend.
Arsenal was added to a list of impressive scalps since the former Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates stars arrival.
Since McCarthy arrived, United has been a different side, defeating Liverpool, Leicester and beating Arsenal’s undefeated streak. He has earned praise and recognition from top stars like Bruno Fernandes, Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcus Rashford.
