Meet the highest paid football managers (top 5).

5. Zinedine Zidane -£8m

The Frenchman has been a class act since taking over as Real Madrid boss from Rafa Benitez. He has led them to a Champions League victory and battled Barca for the title right until the end. Zidane receives £8m a year for his work.

After spending some time working with Real’s Castilla team, he has worked his way up and is proving to be a good appointment so far.

Real Madrid are bound to make a marquee signing and Zidane will have an opportunity to bring in some more big players to his already star-studded side.

Rich on and off the pitch.

4. Arsene Wenger -£8.3

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been a stable manager in what is a hectic world of managerial appointments Arsene brings stability and consistency. He has been keeping the club fighting at the top level and for that he has to be respected.

Wenger is paid £8.3m a year by Arsenal. For the money he has made in developing players to be sold for astronomical fees, so you could argue it’s fair. It’s still a crazy amount of money.

3. Carlo Ancelotti -£9m

After losing Pep Guardiola, Bayern Munich decided to move forward by appointing the much-respected Carlo Ancelotti. The Italian joins with a wealth of experience after managing some of the biggest clubs in the world such as PSG, Real Madrid, Chelsea, A.C Milan and Juventus.

He will be earning £9m a year at the German Giants, you can only imagine after a career like his he used to seeing these kinds of figures. Bayern will be hoping he can win the Champions League in his time with Bayern: he certainly has the prestige and the know-how.

2. Jose Mourinho -£13.8m

In the end Manchester United’s season ended in disappointing fashion, despite winning the FA Cup. They needed to make a big statement and they did it by making none other than The Special One their manager.

Jose Mourinho has started life in Manchester as he wishes to continue by signing Ibrahimovic. Manchester United are a commercial powerhouse and have a constant flow of cash. Because of this they can afford to pay manager Mourinho £13.8m.

Hopefully for the sake of United you get what you pay for and we see Mourinho and his men at their very best.

1. Pep Guardiola - £15m

Manchester City finally got their man. An arguably bigger achievement than any player signing their new owners have made. Convincing one of the very best managers around is huge for the club.

Thus far in his career Pep has enjoyed much success and has helped develop players from mediocrity to world class. He always seems to get the very best out of his players and the Sky Blue faithful will hope this can continue and they can have a spell of dominance in English football and perhaps achieve in Europe.

For his services Manchester City will be paying him a whopping £15m a year. If Pep can transform the club to be something like the stature then it could be worth every penny
