Africa Hosts the Cup but Imports the Coaches

Something not mentioned in the article is the amount of money the foreign coaches make compared to local salaries. 

Sven Goran Eriksson, coaching Ivory Coast, will have made $400,000.00 in a country where most people survive on less than $5 a day. He will also have an all-expenses paid credit card. If he had made it past the group stages he would have doubled his salary, and more bonuses each round.

I hope to see Africa develop more of their own coaches, much like the U.S. did after Bora Milutinovic.
