Jurgen Klopp, Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola all earn far less than the highest-paid coach in football right now. Here are the 10 top-earning managers worldwide!

Click through the gallery above to see the highest-paid managers, and how much they earn annually, in the world, according to L’Equpe and Tuttomercato.

Klopp signed a bumper new deal in December, which has seen him climb to joint-third spot among the highest-paid managers in the game.

His deal of €17.52 million (R282 million) a year sees him on a similar salary to Jose Mourinho, according to L’Equipe.

However, Guardiola earns more than them, pocketing €23.28 million (R375 million) annually at Manchester City.

Those three coaches' salaries are only bettered by Diego Simeone, who is said to earn a whopping €43.6 million (R703 million) annually, almost twice as much as second-placed Guardiola.

Zinedine Zidane is in fifth spot with yearly earnings of €16.8 million (R271 million) at Real Madrid, while Rafael Benitez is the highest-paid manager outside of Europe. The former Los Blancos and Liverpool boss reportedly receives €13.8 million (R222 million) annually at Dalian Yifang.
