Top Ten Highest Paid Football Managers After Mauricio Pochettino Joins PSG

Mauricio Pochettino was appointed PSG manager on Saturday, putting pen to paper on a 18-month deal at the Parc des Princes.

It'll be interesting to see how the former Tottenham boss does in Paris, with stars such as Neymar and Kylian Mbappe possibly not as willing to submit to his high intensity philosophy as his Spurs or Southampton players.

However, whatever happens on the pitch, Pochettino will be taking home a pretty impressive salary. Bein Sports reporter Tancredi Palmeri revealed that the 48-year-old will be earning a whopping €7 million-a-year in France.

Expectations will be high at PSG, with domestic dominance a must, and an expectation to seriously challenge for the Champions League. However, despite the pressure, Pochettino won't be picking up enough cash from the job to make it into the top ten highest paid coaches in world football - which Palmeri also revealed.

See who does make it in below...

10. Hansi Flick, Bayern Munich, €8 million

Flick won the Champions League last season, the trophy that the Bavarians have been desperate to win for the past few campaigns.

9. Carlo Ancelotti, Everton, €8 million

It wasn't just an ambitious project that tempted Ancelotti to Goodison Park, but the Italian is making good on the invesment by turning the Toffees' fortunes around.

8. Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool, €10.5 million

Just across Stanley Park, Klopp isn't doing too badly himself while putting Liverpool back at the pinnacle of English football.

7. Antonio Conte, Inter Milan, €11 million

Conte has revived Inter's fortunes and got them challenging for the Serie A title once again.

6. Zinedine Zidane, Real Madrid, €12 million

Zidane hasn't impressed as much in his second spell as manager at the Bernabeu, but it would be pretty much impossible to match three consecutive Champions Leagues.

5. Fabio Cannavaro, Guangzhou Evergrande, €12 million

You can see why the World Cup winner is happy enough to not test himself in Europe when he's taking this home each year.

4. Rafael Benitez, Dalian Professional, €13.5 million

While players may not be making as many big money moves to China now, managers are certainly still raking it in.

3. Diego Simeone, Atletico Madrid, €15 million

Simeone has consistently had Atleti punching above their weight, and is probably worth every penny of this to the club.

2. Jose Mourinho, Tottenham, €17.5 million

Mourinho hasn't hit his stride in north London, but the Portuguese is still bringing in the big bucks.

1. Pep Guardiola, Manchester City, €23 million

Pep has beaten his old rival once again here, although pressure will continue to build on him to win a Champions League with this paycheck.

Are these managers worth what they're paid?
