Brazilian sports consulting firm Pluri Consultoria have ranked the highest paid managers in World Football at the moment.
Pep Guardiola, unsurprisingly, lies at the top of the helm with a salary estimated at a whopping €17m a year, after joining German side Bayern Munich. Jose Mourihno has moved to second since his return to Chelsea in the summer and is the highest earning Premier League manager. Marcelo Lippi continues to earn a nice package of €10m a year out in China.
New Manchester United boss David Moyes is up to seventh earning nearly €6m. Somehow Sam Allardyce managed to get West Ham to fork out €3.5m per annum for his services which leaves him in 13th ahead of the likes of Roberto Mancini, Rafa Benitez (15), and German manager Joachim Loew (26). Harry Redknapp is still hanging in there with a cool €2.5m with Championship side QPR.
Alex Ferguson was 4th in last year's list making over €9m a year with Manchester United.
Spanish boss Vincente del Bosque seems to have got a substantial increase to €2.35m, since Eamon Dunphy's revelations that the World Cup and European Championship winner was only earning 50k a year.
