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.

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.
