Tottenham’s manager until last weekend was Nuno Espírito Santo, who took over the team until Saturday’s Premier League loss to Manchester United. The poor results led the London club leadership to fire the Portuguese.
In record time, Spurs arranged with Antonio Conte, one of the best coaches in the free agency market, and he’s ready to start giving directions to the squad. The Italian arrived after having had one last experience at Inter Milan until May of this year.
It was already known that in his second cycle in the Premier League, after passing through Chelsea between 2016 and 2018, he will have a budget of 150 million pounds to use in the transfer market and thus empower the team. But the only millionaire figure is not that, but rather that the DT will collect a fortune that places him high on the list of highest paid in the league, according to the English media The Sun.
The best paid technicians in the Premier:
5. Marcelo Bielsa
El Loco, with his particular style, took Leeds to the top flight of English football and achieved a historic ninth position in the last season. His new contract consists of 8 million pounds a year.
4. Brendan Rodgers
Linked with the big clubs, he is one of the coaches with the greatest projection in the Premier League. The Northern Irishman won the FA Cup and Community Shield with Leicester and earns £ 10 million per year.
3. Jurgen Klopp
After taking Borussia Dortmund to the top in Germany, Klopp landed in Liverpool and became a symbol. He gave the Champions League to Anfield Road and has a salary of 15 million pounds a year.
2. Antonio Conte
The brand new Tottenham coach came to take the place of Nuno Espírito Santo and is placed on the same level as Jurgen Klopp, with 15 million pounds annually.
1. Josep Guardiola
The flow of play that he generated in his cycle in Barcelona catapulted him to be considered one of the best coaches of this era. The Spaniard is the highest paid in the Premier League with a salary of 20 million pounds per year.
