Arsenal News: Wenger tops England in managerial rich list

| March 20, 2012 | 22 Comments

According to a list compiled by France Football, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is surprisingly the highest paid manager in England with an annual salary of £7.5m.

Considering his competition in Roberto Mancini, manager of mega-rich Manchester City, and Sir Alex Ferguson, manager of the highly successful Manchester United, many would not have expected the Frenchman to top England’s list.

Mancini only just sneaks into the international top-ten with £5m a year which is a massive surprise given the wages paid out by City to the likes of Carlos Tevez, while Sir Alex Ferguson comes in at 7th raking with a modest but respectable £6.7m.

In terms of the international scene more predictably Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho is the highest paid manager in the world on bringing in £12.3m a year.

The Portugese manager is followed closely by Carlo Ancelotti who was recently appointed manager of PSG, a club definitely not lacking in the financial department.

What are your guys reactions of relative wages of the world’s top paid managers? Feel free to leave a comment below.

The full list reads:

Jose Mourinho (Real Madrid) - £12.3m
Carlo Ancelotti (PSG) - £11.2m
Pep Guardiola (Barcelona) - £8m
Arsene Wenger (Arsenal) - £7.5m
Guus Hiddink (Anzhi) - £7.1m
Fabio Capello (Ex-England) - £7.1m
Sir Alex Ferguson (Man Utd) - £6.7m
Dick Advocaat (Russia) - £5.8m
Jose Camacho (China) - £5.1m
Roberto Mancini (Man City) - £5m

    It makes perfect sense that Wenger makes this amount. He makes by far the most money for the business he works for.

    I think Arsene Wenger deserve it, looking at the excellent structure he had put in place in this club. Mourinho, Ancelloti are been paid base on their past glory, sir Alex deserve more.

    If you consider only trophies, it’s clear that Sir AF deserves more. but if you look at the business achivement, AW deserve his salary.
    During the last 7 years, he didn’t win anything. Fact but before that he won every thing nationaly and he had put Arsenal as 3rd successful club in England. moreover, he helped management to build a new stadium, a new medical facilities, a new training ground.
    Sir Alex Fergusson has achieved magnificent results but the Manchester United are in big debt. but HE deserve more for sure.
    Pep Guardiola should earn more money, it’s evident for me…

      Real Madrid for example. and it’s AW who made RVP and he also made Henry, and all the other stars… it’s not like AW bought RVP when he was a star in another club. and moreover, all the Arsenal fans were asking to sell RVP 15 months ago since he was injured !!!!
      AW makes all the Arsenal heros when they were nothing before. keep that in mind

    Is this the same Arsene Wenger who moans to the press money is ruining the game ?
    The same Arsene Wenger who attacks other clubs like Manchester City.

    The same Arsene Wenger who critisizes players who have ambition and leave Arsenal ?

    Hypocrite of the highest order.
