Various companies and billionaires have invested a huge amount of money in European football. Recent years seem the rate simply increasing. The players are earning more and more nowadays. But with such a mammoth amount of money being invested not only the footballers have been benefited but also the managers are getting hefty fees from the clubs. In this article, we will discuss about the top 10 highest paid managers in European football.
# Top 10 Highest Paid Managers in the European Football:
10) Carlo Ancelotti (£5.3m per season):
The Napoli Boss stands in the 10th spot in this list. The Italian earns as much as 5.3 M GBP per season from his current contract with the Naples based side. He is also the man who helped Real Madrid winning their first UCL title of the 21st century back in 2014.
9) Unai Emery (£6m per season):
Although Arsenal FC sacked the Spaniard recently after their horrible performances in the English top-flight, Emery still sits on the 9th spot in this chart. The former Sevilla boss used to earn 6 M GBP per season during his time at the Emirates Stadium. He failed to bring success at the North London based club and thus had to lose his job.
8) Manuel Pellegrini (£7m per season):
The West Ham Utd head coach grabs 7 million GBP each season. This huge earning has placed him in the 8th spot. The former Man City boss is a very much experienced manager and is one of the highest-paid coaches of the English top flight.
7) Jurgen Klopp (£7m per season):
A certain name to get a place in the chart. Probably the most wanted manager in the football world right now. He has not only helped Liverpool getting back to the level where they belong but also helping them winning trophies at this moment.
6) Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (£7.5m per season):
The manager with the babyface, sitting on the 6th position. Although he is under immense pressure after United’s struggling in this ongoing season, he is still one of the highest-paid EPL managers.
5) Mauricio Pochettino (£8.5m per season):
Another sensational coach as well as personality to make the cut into this list. Spurs sacked the Argentine and appointed Mourinho in his place after their unexpected performances in the EPL. So many European giants are planning to finalize a deal with this Latin American. It worth mentioning that, Mauricio is a very much fans’ favourite because of his gorgeous look as well as brilliant tactics.
4) Zinedine Zidane (£10m per season):
Zizou was definitely successful as a player. Now he is also successful as a manager as well. He is the man who helped the Blancos tasting hat-trick of UCL glory. The former France international sits on the 4th position with his yearly income of 10 M GBP.

No surprise that this football genius is the highest-paid manager of the EPL. The former Barcelona head coach gains 15.2 M GBP per season from his current contract with the Sky Blues.

2) Ernesto Valverde (£20.2m per season):
The current FC Barcelona boss sits on the 2nd position. The Spaniard earns as much as 20.2 M GBP per season. He helped Barca lifting their 26th La Liga title last season. But the former Athletic Bilbao head coach has failed to impress the major part of the Barca fans.
1) Diego Simeone (£35.9m per season):
With a massive seasonal earning of 35.9 M GBP, Diego Simeone stands in the top spot in this chart. He helped Atletico winning their 10th La Liga title. Los Rojiblancos also played in the 2 UCL finals under his guideline.
