2. Jose Mourinho: €17.5m
Almost a year after leaving Manchester United, Mourinho returned to management last November at Tottenham.
The Portuguese accepted a contract until 2023 with an annual salary of €17.5m. Therefore, he immediately became one of the world’s highest-paid managers and must now deliver.
With Harry Kane out injured, however, Mourinho’s task in north London will be anything but easy.
How the Special One does at Spurs will probably be one of the biggest talking points of 2020.
