AceFootball presents to you the top 10 managers who are paid the most amount of money in the world of football.

We have seen the list of top footballers who receive the highest amount of wages, but here we have the names of managers in football who earn the most.

Four days ago, Antonio Conte completed his move to Tottenham, with the Italian boss drawing a sum of £13 million a year in north London.

The former Inter Milan coach helped the club win the Serie A title, and has also led Chelsea to the Premier League triumph back in 2016.

However, where does it leave the Italian head coach in the list of the top-paid managers? Let’s find out.

10. Mauricio Pochettino (Paris Saint-Germain) 🇦🇷

The Argentine receives a salary total of £5.95 million a year and has the likes of Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, and Neymar in his squad. PSG look rather comfortable this season as they lead the French league with a huge point gap. Also, the Champions League campaign has been faring pretty decently under Pochettino.

9. Julian Nagelsmann (Bayern Munich) 🇩🇪

The 34-year-old signed a five-year deal when he arrived at Allianz Arena in the summer from RB Leipzig. Indeed, with all the success that has come Bayern’s way, the German champions are handsomely paying Nagelsmann £6.5 million a year. The club has been doing well under the new boss this season as they stand first in Bundesliga. The Bavarians are also one of the favourites to lift the European silverware this year.

8. Jose Mourinho (Roma) 🇵🇹

Mourinho pockets £6.5 million a year and was appointed recently after getting sacked from Tottenham this summer. Mourinho, therefore, decided to make his way back to Serie A with Roma. The “Special One” has a good reputation in the Italian league, having led Inter Milan to treble success back in 2010. But, Roma will place the responsibility of regaining the Champions League spot in the hands of the Portuguese.

7. Thomas Tuchel (Chelsea) 🇩🇪

No doubt, the Blues have spent a good amount of money to get the German manager at Stamford Bridge after sacking Frank Lampard. Tuchel gets £7 million a year at Chelsea and has thoroughly transformed the Premier League club into one of the best at the moment. Last season’s Champions League glory has boosted the club under the 48-year-old and they look to gain speed in the current domestic season.

6. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (Manchester United) 🇳🇴

Unlike Tuchel, the Norwegian has been unable to land a major trophy for the Red Devils since his arrival. Despite the lack of success, it is known that Solskjaer earns £7.5 million a year at Old Trafford for his duties. Alas, the latest home defeats against Liverpool and Manchester City have put the former Manchester United player under the immense pressure of getting sacked.

5. Massimiliano Allegri (Juventus) 🇮🇹

The Italian manager agreed to a four-year deal with the club as he joined at the same time Cristiano Ronaldo left in the summer. Allegri earns £7.65 million a year at Bianconeri but has not been able to elevate the team as per expectations. After the departure of Andrea Pirlo, the club decided to reappoint the 54-year-old having dismissed him from duty back in 2019.

4. Diego Simeone (Atletico Madrid) 🇦🇷

One cannot judge the success that this man has brought to the Spanish club during recent years. Atletico are the reigning champions of La Liga and hope to find their dominance in the league this season. Under Simeone, the club has won the Europa League two times, along with a Copa del Rey, two Super Cups and two Champions League runner-up places. The Argentine receives a check of £12.75 million a year for his share of responsibilities at Wanda Metropolitano.

3. Antonio Conte (Tottenham) 🇮🇹

The Premier League club appointed the Italian boss after getting rid of Nuno Espirito Santo this week. Actually, Conte refused to accept an offer during the summer for the same club but has finally completed his move which sees him earning £13 million per year. “I can’t wait to start working to convey to the team and the fans the passion, mentality and determination that have always distinguished me, as a player and as a coach,” Conte said after signing the contract with Spurs. “Last summer our union did not happen because the end of my relationship with Inter was still too recent and emotionally too involved with the end of the season, so I felt that it wasn’t yet the right time to return to coaching,” he added.

2. Jurgen Klopp (Liverpool) 🇩🇪

The German tactician has managed to bring overwhelming outcomes at Liverpool since his appointment back in 2015. Reports inform that Klopp currently bags a solid £16 million every year and his deal will expire in 2024. Things are pretty well with him at Anfield, as he has ended a 30-year wait for the Premier League silverware and also landed Champions League success in 2019. So far, the Reds are in brilliant form this season with Mohamed Salah leading the goalscoring tally.

1. Pep Guardiola (Manchester City) 🇪🇸

Understandably, the Spaniard is the highest-paid football manager in the world which sees him earning a total of £18.7 million per year. However, success is not an issue when it comes to Guardiola. During his five years at Etihad Stadium, he has lifted three Premier League trophies, four League Cups, and an FA Cup as well. The only major objective that the 50-year-old has not been able to tick is the Champions League glory. Which, can also be sealed this year with the Sky Blues reflecting excellent form.
