Copa America 2024 is days away, and the Argentina national team is seen as the favorite to win the tournament due to their recent success. The Argentina team won the last Copa America trophy in 2021 in Brazil, and then they won the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Their manager, Lionel Scaloni, has been responsible for the Argentina team winning these important trophies, and now they are aiming to win another Copa America to win three out of three international competitions they play in. Despite the success, Scaloni is not one of the best-paid managers in the Copa America. He is not even among the top five best-paid managers in South America. The number one manager who is paid the best is Uruguay’s manager, Marcelo Bielsa. He has transformed Uruguay to be a serious threat in South America and is also one of the favorites to win Copa America 2024 this summer.
