Luis Felipe Scolari Pips Jose Mourinho As Highest-Paid Coach

The former Brazil and Chelsea manager takes over the reins at Uzbeki side Bunyodkor, and earns more than the Inter gaffer...
Inter coach Jose Mourinho is no longer the highest-paid coach in the world.

That honour has now gone to former Chelsea and Brazil manager, Luis Felipe Scolari, after signing an 18-month contract with Uzbekistan side Bunyodkor.

Scolari is set to earn €13million for his services, topping Mourinho's €11million a season that he currently earns.

The 2002 World Cup-winner says that he is there to win, and wants to grow the game in Uzbekistan.

"I am here because I believe I can contribute to the growth of the Uzbeki game," Scolari said to Corriere Dello Sport.

"I also believe in this project."
