Unemployed Ex-NUFC Manager Is Best Paid In England

8 years ago

The highest paid football manager rich list has just been released and there is one person who stands out a mile.

France Football magazine have compiled a list of the top ten paid managers for the current 2012/13 season and the highest paid UK manager isn’t even in a job!

The latest accounts released by Liverpool show that they had to fork out £9.5m to Kenny Dalglish and his staff after Brendan Rodgers replaced him.

According to France Football, a staggering £8.52m went to Kenny to compensate his remaining contract, without him having to manage a single match this season.

The full top ten in the world is (figures in Euros);

1 Jose Mourinho (Real Madrid) 14m
2 Carlo Ancelotti (PSG) 12m
3 Marcelo Lippi (Guangzhou Evergrande) 11m
4 Guus Hiddink (Anzhi Makhachkala) 10.8m
5 Kenny Dalglish (Dole) 10m
6 Arsene Wenger (Arsenal) 9.4m
7 Fabio Capello (Russia) 9.2m
8 Roberto Mancini (Manchester City) 7.6m
9 Alex Ferguson (Manchester United) 7.5m
10 Jose Camacho (China) 6.1m

This sorry story of Liverpool’s reckless spending gets worse for their fans.

A story (rumour) went viral that Dalglish had said he wouldn’t take the £8m+ and it could be put towards signings.

Fans then bombarded the Liverpool Echo, demanding why this hadn’t been publicised regarding the grand gesture by their departing hero.

Turns out it was because it simply wasn’t true…

Nice work if you can get it!
