There is roughly a £19million gap between the lowest paid Premier League manager and the highest paid. Eight of the division’s 20 bosses take home annual salaries of £5million or more. We’ve ranked all of the top-flight’s permanent bosses here in terms of their earnings, with Paul Heckingbottom not listed as he is currently a caretaker.
Joint 19) Sam Allardyce, West Brom
As part of a complex deal, Allardyce’s remuneration package is directly linked to his side’s finishing position, with Allardyce to receive a percentage of the club’s Premier League prize money.
The Daily Mail report that the value of the contract is capped at £10m if he hits every performance target.
Allardyce will also earn a huge bonus of £2million if he manages to keep West Brom in the Premier League this season.
The Telegraph also report that he will automatically be handed a 12-month extension to his current contract if he does manage that feat.
Joint 19) Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea
Much like Allardyce, Tuchel is reported to be on a heavily incentivised deal, with the Blues still paying former boss Frank Lampard his £75,000 a week wage.
Though Tuchel was understood to be far from pleased that the initial deal is for just 18 months, it does contain clauses triggering an option for him to stay if he keeps Chelsea in the Champions League for the next two seasons.
17) Ralph Hassenhutl, Southampton
Hassenhutl signed a new contract with Southampton last June, but is still one of the lowest-paid managers in the Premier League.
He extended his stay at St Mary’s until 2024, having replaced Mark Hughes in December 2018.
The Austrian earns £21,000 per week and an annual income of £1million.
16) Graham Potter, Brighton
Potter, in just his second season as a Premier League manager is secure in his position, despite Brighton battling at the wrong end of the table.
The former Swansea manager is reported to be on the same wage as Hassenhutl, with an annual earning of £1million, but signed a bumper six-year contract just six months after taking charge.

15) Dean Smith, Aston Villa
There is a significant hike in income for the next manager, with Aston Villa boss Smith earning a reported £31,250 per week, which translates to £1.5million per year.
Smith’s current deal runs through to the summer of 2023, after he signed a four-year contract midway through Villa’s first season back in the top-flight.
14) Sean Dyche, Burnley
Perhaps surprisingly given his success with the club Burnley boss Dyche will see his contract expire in the summer of 2022.
Dyche has been in charge at Turf Moor since 2012, helping to establish the Clarets in the Premier League, though he has refused to be drawn on the prospect of a new deal.
His current contract makes him the club’s highest-paid employee, with Sportekz claiming his salary is £2.4m per annum, while the Lancashire Telegraph have reported it could be as high as £3.5m.
13) Steve Bruce, Newcastle
With his current initial three-year contract, Bruce is believed to earn a weekly wage of £57,000, which works out as an annual salary of £2.75m.
Though Magpies fans have made clear they would like to see the back of Bruce, he would be entitled to a sizeable pay-off, with the Telegraph reporting he will be handed a new deal if he keeps Newcastle in the Premier League.
12) David Moyes, West Ham
Earning slightly more than Bruce, West Ham boss David Moyes has an annual wage of £3m, though the Hammers are attempting to sign him to a longer-term deal.
Moyes and the club activated the 12-month option on his original deal, which will keep him at the London Stadium until the summer of 2022.
11) Scott Parker, Fulham
The top-flight’s most stylish manager signed a new three-year contract after guiding Fulham to promotion last season.
That is believed to see him earn a wage of £73,000 per week, or £3.5m per year, which is perhaps surprisingly high for such a young manager.

10) Nuno Espirito Santo, Wolves
The Portuguese penned a new three-year deal to stay at Wolves in September 2020, after a season of consolidation in the Premier League.
He is believed to earn a weekly wage of £85,000, which translates to annual earnings of £4m.
9) Roy Hodgson, Crystal Palace
Palace boss Hodgson is the top-flight’s oldest manager and with his contract expiring at the end of the season, is set to leave Selhurst Park.
His most recent deal was signed in March 2020, which sees him earn a reported £4.5m annually and he recently said he was undecided on his future beyond this term.
8) Mikel Arteta, Arsenal
Arteta has recently come under pressure for Arsenal’s mediocre performances in the Premier League this season and he is still working under the first contract he signed with the Gunners.
He is under contract until 2023 and is believed to earn the same £5m annual sum that his predecessor.
7) Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Manchester United
Though Solskjaer’s United side have made a habit of being eliminated before the finals of cup competitions, the Norwegian has improved the Red Devils’ fortunes since taking over.
He was appointed permanently in March 2019 following a successful caretaker spell and earns a reported £160,000 per week, which works out as £7.8m per annum.
But its has been reported that United are set to heavily reward Solskjaer with a bumper new deal that will take his earnings up to £10m a year.
6) Marcelo Bielsa, Leeds
Perhaps unusually for such a high-profile Premier League boss, Bielsa is happy to operate on one-year contracts, giving both the club and the manager the chance to split at the end of each season.
While his contracts are short, the Argentine is still one of the highest paid in the league, taking home a reported £166,660 per week or £8m per year.
5) Brendan Rodgers, Leicester
Brendan Rodgers has enjoyed much success with Leicester and committed his long-term future to the Foxes in December 2019 by signing a deal until 2025.
The bumper deal is understood to have doubled Rodgers’ wages, taking his earnings from £5m per year to an annual wage of £10m.
4) Carlo Ancelotti, Everton
It is unsurprising that a former Real Madrid manager earns one of the highest salaries in the league.
Sportekz claim Carlo Ancelotti’s salary is £11m per annum, while the Sun have reported Ancelotti’s deal is worth up to £14m over the course of a season.
His current deal expires in 2024, but the Italian revealed in February that he is keen to stay at Goodison Park.
3) Jose Mourinho, Tottenham
While he is regarded as a top manager, Mourinho was also appointed by Spurs because of his box-office appeal.
That is reflected in his wages, with the Daily Mail claiming the Portuguese boss earns a £15million-a-year, with a huge weekly wage of a £313,000.
2) Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool
Klopp led Liverpool to the Champions League and Premier League titles in successive seasons and that success was rewarded in his latest contract.
The deal he signed in December 2019 will see him stay at Anfield until 2024, earning £16m annually in the process.
1) Pep Guardiola, Manchester City
Manchester City boss Guardiola signed a two-year contract extension in November 2020, which will see him stay at the Etihad for longer than any of his previous clubs.
The Catalan is reported to earn at least £20m per year, which places him far ahead of any of his Premier League rivals in the wage standings.
