Pep Guardiola is the best paid manager in the Premier League, earning a reported £20m a year to be in charge of Manchester City.

The Spaniard has been at the helm at City since the summer of 2016 and from then to now he has guided them to two Premier League titles and one FA Cup victory.

Jose Mourinho and Jurgen Klopp are tied in second place as they both earn around £15m per year.

Mourinho took charge of Spurs after Mauricio Pochettino's sacking last year, while Klopp led Liverpool to their first ever Premier League win and first top division title in 30 years in the 2019/20 campaign.

In the season before that, they won the Champions League.

Top 10 Highest Paid Premier League Managers

Pep Guardiola tops the list

ManagerClubSalary Per Year
Pep GuardiolaMan City£20m
Jose MourinhoTottenham£15m
Jurgen KloppLiverpool£15m
Carlo AncelottiEverton£11.5m
Brendan RodgersLeicester£10m
Marcelo BielsaLeeds£8m
Ole Gunnar SolskjaerMan Utd£7.5m
Ralph HassenhuttlSouthampton£6m
Frank LampardChelsea£5.5m
Mikel ArtetaArsenal£5m

Carlo Ancelotti earns a cool £11.5m a year, with Brendan Rodgers in fifth on £10m a year.

Perhaps the most interesting inclusion in the top 10 is Marcelo Bielsa of Leeds, who recently signed a new deal with the Yorkshire side.

Last season in their Championship-winning campaign, he was on £6m a year but Leeds have taken no chances and have given him a significant increase in pay after he returned them to the Premier League for the first time in 16 years.

Despite being the manager of a promoted side, he earns more than Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Chelsea's Frank Lampard, and Arsenal's Mikel Arteta.

The other manager making up the top 10 is Southampton's Ralph Hasenhuttl.
