These football managers are the highest paid in the worldLast updated on Nov 09, 2019, 07:00 pm
Football is one of the richest sports in the world.
Starting from the club to the players, most of them earn a healthy living for themselves.
However, the managers too do not lag behind and take home a lump sum.
On the same note, we rank the current highest paid managers in the sport.
Mauricio Pochettino (£8.5m)
The Argentine who has helped Tottenham Hotspur scale new heights
At number five is the Argentine in the form of Mauricio Pochettino, who has helped Tottenham Hotspur scale new heights of late.
As the club finished in the top four for four consecutive years, along with finishing as the UEFA Champions League runners-up, he was tempted to sign a new deal.
As the deal is worth £42.5 million, he earns £8.5 million per year.
Zinedine Zidane (£10.5m)
The Frenchman takes a handsome jump at Real Madrid
Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid for two and a half years saw him earning £6.47 million per year.
The pay was justified, considering the success the club had under him, including three UCL titles.
As the club struggled following his departure, he is back for his second term and has taken a significant jump, as he earns £10.5 million per year, as of now.
Pep Guardiola (£15.2m)
Manchester City's Pep Guardiola rakes in the moolah
No one can deny the amount of success Pep Guardiola has had with all the clubs he has managed to far.
Starting from Barcelona to Bayern Munich, he is continuing the same with Manchester City.
Furthermore, his domestic treble last season allowed him to sign an extension, as he earns a whopping £15.2 million per year, making him the highest paid manager in EPL.
Ernesto Valverde (20.2m)
But the highest paid Spanish is at Guardiola's former club
Guardiola might be the highest-paid Spaniard in EPL, but when it comes to the highest paid Spaniard in today's date, it is Ernesto Valverde, who is handling reins at Guardiola's former club, Barcelona.
Having tasted domestic success, he was prompted to sign a contract extension this year.
Although it is unclear if he took a salary hike, he still earns £20.2 million per year.
Diego Simeone (£35.9m)
And, the word's highest paid manager is an Argentine
We started the list with an Argentine, and that's how we end it, as Atletico Madrid's godfather, Diego Simeone, is officially the world's highest paid manager.
Having managed the side for eight years, he has tasted all types of success, including the Europa League, and finishing as UCL runners-up, twice.
He signed another extension in March and earns a prodigious £35.9 million per year.
