Football is undoubtedly the biggest sport in the world. Every year a huge amount of money is being invested into the development of football.

As much as there are the highest-paid footballers who are being astronomical figures to play for a club, there are also the highest-paid managers who manage some of the biggest clubs in the world.

Managers of football play a significant role to play in the performance of the team. They decide on the strategy and the roles of every participant in the team.

They ensure that the team is working as a whole. It motivates players to become better and improve their game daily.

Football managers may be in a highly stressful environment, but they are certainly rewarded well for their services.

Even when they're sacked, they still earn enormous amounts. In fact, Jose Mourinho has totalled more than £97 million/$115 million for all the times he has been fired during his managerial career.

The best-paid managers in the world are unsurprisingly at some of Europe’s most glamorous clubs, with the head coaches of Liverpool, Manchester City, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Barcelona and Real Madrid featuring at the top end.

Simeone is the longest-serving coach in Europe’s major leagues and has been well-remunerated for the transformative effect he’s had at the club since 2011.
