France Football magazine has produced its annual survey of manager wages and the Arsenal manager keeps his place in the top ten of the highest paid.
The weekly publication estimates the earnings using the following method:
They base their data on pre-tax wages, bonuses and commercial contracts combined together to reach the final figure.
Six managers from the top ten are based in England, two of them are in Spain, one in Germany and the only national team manager is actually ranked number two, which is kind of surprising.
Here are the top ten managers and their wages:
- Jose Mourinho (ex-Chelsea) €24m
2. Pep Guardiola (Bayern Munchen) and Fabio Capello (ex-Russia) €16.5m
4. Rafael Benitez (Newcastle & ex-Real Madrid) €14.8m
5. Jurgen Klopp (Liverpool) €13m
6. Diego Simeone (Atletico Madrid) €12.5m
7. Luis Enrique (Barcelona) €12m
8. Arsene Wenger (Arsenal) €11m
9. Brendan Rogers (ex-Liverpool) €10m
10. Louis Van Gaal (Manchester United) €9.5m
France Football also mentions that Arsene Wenger’s wages are valued at £8.3m (€10.5m) with the remaining €0.5m coming from his TV work with the Al-Jazeera group.
He will also be part of the BeIn Sports TV crew during Euro 2016 alongside Pires, Desailly, Da Fonseca and Papin.
