Italian football maestro Marcello Lippi might not be making big headlines in Europe anymore but he is still very much involved in the beautiful game. The legendary tactician will be remembered for guiding Italy to World Cup success in 2006. He is also the last man to help Juventus win UEFA Champions League in 1995/96 season.
The 70-year-old is now enjoying his final years in China. He won the League in three consecutive years with Guangzhou Evergrande in Chinese Super League. It was enough for him to be appointed China national team Coach. It is the job that is earning him £18 million per year at the moment.
