World’s richest football managers, with Diego Simeone being the richest football manager according to WealthyCelebrity.
Diego Simeone is the richest manager in the world, with a net worth more than Pep Guardiola of Manchester City.
The Argentinian has been the manager of Atletico Madrid for over a decade, winning two league titles and twice reaching the Champions League final.
List of world’s richest football managers
1st – Diego Simeone (£34.1m)
Simeone’s title as the world’s wealthiest manager will likely remain intact even if he leaves Atletico Madrid shortly, thanks to an £8.8 million cushion over his nearest opponent.
2nd – Antonio Conte (£25.3m)
With a net worth of £25.3 million, Antonio Conte is thought to be the world’s second richest manager.
The Italian has a remarkable resume, having won league titles in both England and Italy, including three in a row as Juventus manager.
He also had a successful term as coach of the Italian national team before taking over as manager of Tottenham Hotspur in November, signing an 18-month contract.
3rd – Pep Guardiola (£22.7m)
Since taking his initial steps into senior management with Barcelona in 2008, Guardiola has won nine league titles, including the treble in his first season.
In his penultimate season at the Nou Camp, he won another Champions League, before continuing his career with Bayern Munich and Manchester City.
Guardiola has amassed a net worth of £22.7 million since joining City six years ago, which was the richest club in the world until recently.
4th – Jurgen Klopp (£20m)
It’s surely no surprise that Jurgen Klopp is on this list after ending Liverpool’s 30-year wait for a league title and delivering the club’s sixth Champions League success.
The German is in his sixth season at Anfield and has just over two years left on his current deal with the club.
Although he has hinted at taking a break from management when his contract expires in 2024, a fresh term may see his net worth rise much higher than £20 million.
5th – Jose Mourinho (£19.2m)
Jose Mourinho is one of football’s most accomplished managers, having won league titles in Portugal, England, Italy, and Spain.
He has also won the Champions League twice, the first with Porto and the second with Inter Milan in 2009/10.
Experiences at Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur have also contributed to the current Roma manager’s £19.2 million net worth.
