7. Ernesto Valverde (N/A but still paid by Barcelona) – €19m.
* N/A - Not available, or in this case unemployed.
A record of 97 wins, 32 draws and 16 defeats in 145 games for Barcelona wasn’t enough to save Valverde’s job.
The 56-year-old was always under scrutiny during his two-and-half-year spell in charge at Camp Nou. And the uncouth manner in which Barcelona handled his dismissal left even their own supporters unimpressed.
While Valverde has released no new updates on his future since then, though, he will still be paid €19m for this season anyway.
