Yes, they typically hold a more public profile and are paid more than sufficient amount. So when I came across the list of top ten paid football managers, it didn’t strike me that much, but what struck me most is figuring out who tops the list and also who falls at the bottom of the list. It might surprise you to know Pep Guardiolas is conveniently taking the highest spot on the list as far as salaries are concerned. Anyway, you are to decide whether or not he is worth taking the topmost spot on the list…I mean for leading other world’s best coaches ever in the history of football the likes of Carlo Ancelotti and  José Mourinho of Real Madrid and Chelsea respectively. Well, we say a big congratulations to the Spanish tactician, for being the highest paid football manager in the world. Read on to see the full list.

4. Fabio Capello:

The current head coach of the Russia national football team, Fabio Capello earns $13 million. Surprised that he made the list? Anyway, it is most certainly, that no national team manager earns more money annually than Fabio Capello in this most current ranking of highest paid football managers. Okay, you may think that he is yet to prove himself to equal his massive paycheck in the Russian National football team, but just wait a minute, Russia will probably host 2018 world cup, so he might be planning a big surprise in 2018. So even though Capello was asked to come before the Parliament to make known why Russia were such a big disappointment at 2014 world cup, he might prove himself next world cup.
