3. Diego Simeone: €15m
The Argentine’s spot among the highest-paid football managers in the world is well deserved.
Simeone’s unique style defensive and counter-attacking football has worked wonders for Atletico Madrid. It’s won them a La Liga and two Europa League titles.
What’s more impressive, though, is the way Atletico consistently challenge Barcelona and Real Madrid each season.
So overall, it’s a job well done for Cholo.
