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.
