The Highest-Paid Coaches In Football Today

Pep Guardiola is currently the most decorated active coach in the game, but there are two managers who earn more than the Manchester City boss does. Here are the highest-paid coaches in football this season, including two who have already been sacked!

Click through the gallery above to see the 10 highest-paid coaches this season, and what they earn annually, according to France Football.

The Spaniard lifted his 29th trophy at the beginning of March, when Manchester City beat Aston Villa 2-1 in the Carabao Cup final.

Only three coaches, namely the late Valeriy Lobanovskyi, Mircea Lucescu and Sir Alex Ferguson, have claimed more silverware than the 49-year-old, but all of them have retired.

However, despite Guardiola's ever-increasing trophy cabinet, he is only the third-best-paid coach in the game, pocketing €27 million (R516 million) per season at City, according to France Football.

Inter Milan's Antonio Conte and Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone are the two top-earning coaches in football right, with Conte receiving a whopping €30 million (R573 million) annually.

Simeone, though, receives €10 million (R191 million) more after Atletico agreed to pay him €40 million (R764 million) per year after his latest contract renewal in February 2019.

Jurgen Klopp is currently in fourth place after putting pen to paper on a new deal worth €24 million (R459 million) a season in December.
