The Daily Mail says if he is successful next summer, the cash reward he will receive could touch the £1million mark. Hodgson accepted a basic package worth £3m a year when he was released by West Bromwich Albion to take the team to Euro 2012 following Fabio Capello’s exit.
His salary is less than half the Italian’s £6.5m wage during his five-year spell as England manager, but there are huge bonuses in the deal.
Hodgson has a number of targets, including further incentives for progressing beyond the group stage in Brazil. The bonuses for qualifying were put in place before the first group game against Moldova last September but the incentives for progress next summer will be decided in the new year.
