Highest paid Premier League managers

The Premier League clubs not only spend a big amount of money on their players, but they make sure to have one of the best managers in the world too... which is also expensive.

 

One of the world best football managers are appointed to the Premier League clubs.

 

They have come to the realisation that no matter how good players they have if they don't have the right manager the things just don't work out.

 

Here is a list of the top 10 highest paid Premier League managers.

 


10.Eddie Howe – AFC Bournemouth - £4million


 

Back in 2012, Eddie Howe was appointed as a manager of AFC Bournemouth. Since then he had a real success with the club as he earned two promotions.

 

It is reported that the Cherries manager is earning £77,000-a-week.

 

However, this season things don't look good for Bournemouth as the club is in the relegation zone with only 27 points.


9.Mikel Arteta - Arsenal - £5m



Arteta was appointed as Arsenal manager in December 2019, after Unai Emery was sacked as he had a terrible season with the Gunners.

 

Arsenal are the pure prove that no matter how many quality players a club have, the manager is a key part of the team.

 

Under Arsene Wenger's management, which was 22 years, Arsenal were among the best teams in the world, but when Emery came to the Emirates things changed.

 

Now with the new signing of Mikel Arteta it looks like the Gunners have progress and seemingly, the 38-year-old Spaniard has done a good job. Arsenal exited the Europa League under his management, but he proved that he is capable to push the team forward.

 

8.Frank Lampard – Chelsea - £5.5million


 

Frank Lampard was appointed as Chelsea's manager in the summer of 2019.

Since then he proved that he was not only a great player, as he is considered as one of the best midfielders in the world for all time, but he managed to prove himself as a trustworthy manager.

 

It is reported that Super Frankie is earning the impressive £105,000 a week.

 

He is considered as one of the best young managers as he is doing his best to keep his team into one of the fiercely-contested top four spots this year.



7.Ralph Hasenhuttl – Southampton - £6million


 

Ralph Hasenhuttl has been managing Southampton since 2018.

 

The Austrian signed a new deal and now his salary is £115,000 per week.

 

His team is currently on the 14th position of the Premier League table as they are one point behind Newcastle United.

 

The Austrian will have to keep his team up in the table as in the beginning of the season they were close to the relegation zone.


=6. Jurgen Klopp – Liverpool - £7.5million



Surprisingly, we expected that the German would be higher on this list as he led Liverpool to glory in the Champions League. He is earning £145,000-a-week.

 

Klopp is among the best managers in the world and this season he was close on winning the Premier League title, and improving Arsenal record back in 2004 for a season without defeat.

 

The German manager led Liverpool to two finals of the Champions League as he won one of them in 2019.

 

This season Liverpool are going to be the winners of the Premier League as they are 25 points ahead of Manchester City in second.


=6. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – Manchester United - £7.5million


 

Solskjaer and Klopp earn almost the same amount of money.

 

The Norwegian is leading the Red Devils since 2018, after he inherited Jose Mourinho as Manchester United manager.

 

He had not bad season with United so far, as he is progressing in the Europa League and his team is currently at the 5th position on the Premier League table.


4.Brendan Rodgers – Leicester City - £10million


 

This season Brandon Rodgers is one of the highest paid Premier League managers as he is earning £192,000 per week.

 

Rodgers signed the new deal with Leicester in 2019. The Foxes had a great season so far as they are in the top three of the Premier League table.

 

Leicester have finished in the ninth position last season and that's why Rodgers replaced Claude Puel and now they are in a great form.

 

3.Carlo Ancelotti - Everton - £11.5m


 

Everton surprised many with their new manager in the face of Carlo Ancelotti. It is reported that Ancelotti earns around 250,000 per week.

 

The Italian manager has many successes as a manager. He has won many trophies with almost every team that he was managing.

 

He has experience in the Premier League as he won the title when he was Chelsea's head coach back in 2009/10 season.

 

2.Jose Mourinho – Tottenham - £15million


 

Tottenham assigned Mourinho as manager in November 2019 as a replacement of Pochettino.

 

Jose Mourinho has a lot of experience in the Premier League as he was managing Chelsea and Manchester United.

 

He won the Premier League with Chelsea three times and when he was Manchester United's head coach, he won the Europa League in 2016/17 season.

 

Some say that Tottenham is a club where Jose Mourinho could spent a decade, while others claim that this will end badly for both sides.

 

Regardless of what the future holds for Mourinho the reality is that he is earning £288,000 per week.


1.Pep Guardiola – Manchester City - £20million


 

Guardiola proved that he is one of the best managers in the world and his salary is the pure prove. His current deal sees him earning £385,000 per week.

 

He firmly cemented his name into the British footballing history books.

 

Pep Guardiola came to Etihad Stadium in 2016 and he managed to win the league title two consecutive times.

 

Guardiola's future at City is still unclear, as his current deal expires in 2021 and the two-year ban from UEFA left us wonder whether the Spaniard will stay with the Citizens.
