USA boss Klinsmann could experience big World Cup windfall

Juergen Klinsmann could be the recipient of a hefty bonus depending on how the USA team performs in the 2014 World Cup.

Already the highest-paid US manager with a yearly salary of $2.5million, the German may rake in as much as $10.5m next year if his side wins in Brazil.

With that scenario highly unlikely, US Soccer has implemented a pay scale that will see Klinsmann pocket at least $500,000 simply for competing at WC2014. released an audited financial statement this week which said that Klinsmann will be receiving bonuses dependent on their performance but stopped short of including a breakdown of the various stages of the World Cup.
