A good coach is nowadays taken as the basis for success. Clubs give huge salaries to managers, which sometimes equal or even exceed some players. According to L’Equipe, who are the highest paid coaches in 2023?
10. Xabi Alonso – Bayer Leverkusen – €5 million per season
It’s rather surprising to find a rookie coach in the top ten highest paid coaches, who is only having his first engagement in adult football. But Leverkusen put a lot of faith in Xabi Alonso and the Spanish coach is returning the trust – he has already pulled Werkself from 17th place to seventh.
9. José Mourinho – AS Roma – €9.2 million
The Special One. José Mourinho is happy at Roma and the management is happy with him too. Last year he led Wolves to victory in the Conference League, now he is fighting for the Champions League. He also turned down the Portugal national team for AS, so the nine million euros a season is well deserved.
8. Simone Inzaghi – Inter Milan – €10 million
We continue to stay in Italy. Inter coach and club legend Simone Inzaghi earns 800,000 euros more than Mourinho, but he has the same number of points as AS Roma in the Serie A table.
7. Carlo Ancelotti – Real Madrid – 11 million euros
While Xavi is paying for Barcelona’s poor situation and is only receiving €3 million, Carlo Ancelotti has nothing to worry about at Real Madrid. The Italian coach has earned a salary of 11 million euros per season, and has justified the millions he has collected by winning both La Liga and the Champions League.
6. Thomas Tuchel – Bayern Munich – €12 million
The latest coach on the list. Thomas Tuchel took over Bayern Munich only last week, the management wanted him badly, that’s why they pushed his salary hard.
5. Massimiliano Allegri – Juventus – €12.8 million
A traditional coach who has a difficult position at Juventus. Indeed, the management took 15 points away from the club, with which they would be safely in second place with a four-point lead over Lazio. As it is, the Old Lady is in seventh place and struggling to get into the cups at all.
4. Graham Potter – Former Chelsea coach – €13.5 million
In fourth place, we’re already moving to England, a goldmine for coaches, where salaries jump many notches. Even though Graham Potter was sacked on Sunday and is no longer Chelsea coach, he is still under contract for a few more seasons and therefore will continue to land €13.5 million a year until he signs at another club.
3. Jürgen Klopp – Liverpool – €17.8 million
On the “box” we find Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp. The German coach has helped transform Liverpool and put them back where they belong. For that, he has been duly rewarded. But this year the Reds are experiencing a weaker season and it is questionable whether Klopp will receive 17.8 million euros next season.
2. Pep Guardiola – Manchester City – €22.4 million
We’ll see another jump of almost five million euros when we move from Liverpool to Manchester City. Pep Guardiola receives €22.4 million a year from his Qatari owners and it has to be said, deservedly so, he has turned the Citizens into a machine that has conquered the Premier League. Only the Champions League… that would probably be a bit higher.
1. Diego Simeone – Atlético Madrid – €34 million
The highest paid coach in the world might introduce someone, as well as the amount. However, Atlético Madrid know well that they owe their successes of the last decade not to any player, but to their coach.
Diego Simeone is the architect of the Colchoneros’ rise and the club’s main star, which is why he earned such a galactic contract a few years ago. Atlético didn’t want to lose their coach, so they gave him a big hand. However, this season the Rojiblancos are in decline and it is quite possible that they will indeed part ways in the summer.
