10 richest football managers today

To make it clear, not only managers of European clubs are featured on the list of the most-paid coaches. Apart from superstars like Klopp or Zidane, there will be former managers of the best clubs that are currently working abroad.

Rafa Benitez 

A Spanish football manager Rafa Benitez is #10 on the list of coaches with the biggest net worth. His total gross wages are evaluated at €13 million. By 2021, Benitez earned such a big sum thanks to coaching Real Madrid, Liverpool, and Newcastle. Currently, he is a manager in the Chinese Super League’s Dalian Professional.

Massimiliano Allegri

Massimiliano Allegri is 9th with his gross wages equal to €13.5 million. An Italian manager’s net worth is $5 million as well, which makes him one of the most successful head coaches in the country. Add to this his devotion to Italy as he managed only local clubs (Juventus, Milan, Sassuolo) and see a rare example of success within one country. By the way, you can bet on Juve to defeat Napoli in their next match at Bwin Sportsbook.

Ernesto Valverde

Known as a former Barcelona manager, Ernesto Valverde places 7th on our list. By 2021, his net worth reached €19 million. Despite such a great sum, Valverde may lose his position by the end of the year as he isn’t working now. After a horrible 8-2 Barcelona defeat by Bayern Munich, Valverde was fired and is still jobless.

French former player and manager of Real Madrid, Zinedine Zidan is the 6th richest coach in the world. According to online gambling sites in France, his net worth is  €63, while he earns more than €23 million per year. Who dares to say it is undeserved as Zidan brought his old new club another La Liga and Supercopa de España titles.

José Mourinho

José Mourinho is one of the best and popular managers in the football world. No wonder that he placed 5th with his €23 million annual income. Moreover, the Portuguese former footballer and manager of Tottenham is reported to be around €50-100 million net worth, which makes him one of the richest football managers today.

Jürgen Klopp

Liverpool’s head coach is just one step ahead of his colleague and competitor in the Premier League. Jurgen Klopp occupies the 4th position with more than a €23 million salary. Not bad for one of the top EPL managers! However, the modest success of Liverpool in this year’s PL questions Klopp’s presence in top-5 next year.

Pep Guardiola

Pep Guardiola opens the top-3. A Spanish coach who trains Man City earns around €27 million every year. As the club is currently leading the EPL standings, such a salary is justified. Considering his previous success in Spain and Germany, he could be paid even more!
