Manchester United Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Will Earn More Than Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly on an annual salary of £7.5 million, which makes him the third highest-paid manager in the Premier League.

Only Pep Guardiola (£15 million) and Mauricio Pochettino (£8.5 million) are raking in more cash than him.

So, Solskjaer is on a higher wage package than the likes of Jurgen Klopp, Unai Emery and Maurizio Sarri.

HIGHEST-PAID PREMIER LEAGUE MANAGERS:

Guardiola - £15 million

Pochettino - £8.5 million

Solskjaer - £7.5 million

Klopp - £7 million

Emery - £6 million

Sarri - £5.15 million

His predecessor, Jose Mourinho, was pocketing a cool £15 million a year.

Meanwhile, the 46-year-old was confirmed as United manager yesterday. He penned a three-year deal after a spectacular spell in charge as caretaker boss.

He's recorded 14 victories in all competitions including impressive scalps over Arsenal, Spurs, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

The job is now his on a full-time basis and he's excited to lead the club long-term.

"From the first day I arrived, I felt at home at this special club," said Solskjær. "It was an honour to be a Manchester United player, and then to start my coaching career here.

"The last few months have been a fantastic experience and I want to thank all of the coaches, players and staff for the work we've done so far.

"This is the job that I always dreamed of doing and I'm beyond excited to have the chance to lead the club long-term and hopefully deliver the continued success that our amazing fans deserve."
