3. Pep Guardiola (Manchester City) – €27m.
From coaching Barcelona’s youth teams in 2008 to where he is now, Guardiola’s career has been one hell of a rollercoaster.
The Catalan coach has enjoyed trophy-laden spells in charge of Barcelona’s first-team, Bayern Munich and now Manchester City. It doesn’t matter which league he’s in, Pep always strikes gold.
Back-to-back Premier League titles and a domestic treble last season prove that Guardiola has earned his €27m-per-year.
