4.- English clubs can pay his elevated wage.
To those who didn’t know, Diego Simeone is the highest-paid manager in the world right now. His case is very specific in world football.
The Argentine manager told the Colchoneros’ board of directors that he wanted to earn even more than any of his players.
This decision came to him as a way to instil respect from the footballers. In doing this, ‘Cholo’ also limited many more clubs that would love to sign him in the future.
The €23 million per-season he earns is an amount that very few clubs in the world are able to pay.
Only English football or state-supported clubs have that kind of money.
