Four of the 11 highest earning managers are now working in China, but where does Jose Mourinho feature, and who is the current highest paid manager in the game?

Click through the gallery above to see the 10 highest paid managers, and their annual salaries, in 2017.

Former England and Real Madrid boss Fabio Capello was appointed the head coach of Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning on Sunday. According to beIN SPORTS journalist Tancredi Palmeri, the Italian will earn a whopping €10 million (R144 million) a year in the Far East. Overall, though, he only sits in seventh place in the ranking of the highest paid coaches.

Manchester City's Pep Guardiola and Marcelo Lippi, who is in charge of the Chinese national team, jointly top the ranking with annual wages of €20 million (R288 million).

Manchester United boss Mourinho follows in third spot with €14 million (R202 million), the same amount Carlo Ancelotti apparently earns yearly at Bayern Munich.

Guardiola's predecessor at City Manuel Pellegrini also moved to China and reportedly earns €12 million (R173 million) annually at Hebei China Fortune, while ex-Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas receives the same amount at Shanghai SIPG.

Arsene Wenger, Zinedine Zidane – who recently became the first manager to successfully defend the UEFA Champions League title – Diego Simeone and Antonio Conte complete the ranking.

Ayibo some coaches went to China to milk the money like Pellegrini and Villa-Boas. I think my Coach Wenger is overpaid amd also Marcelo Filipi.
