Ten Hag’s Man Utd wage is less than HALF Guardiola gets & even less than Rodgers


ERIK TEN HAG will pocket £9m-a-year at Manchester United – less than half what Pep Guardiola gets at Man City.

And even Leicester City’s Brendan Rodgers will be earning more than the man tasked with guiding the Red Devils back to the big time.

Ten Hag was finally announced as United’s new manager on Thursday after weeks of speculation.

He officially takes charge at Old Trafford this summer once he has completed the season with Ajax.

The Dutchman has penned a contract until June 2025 which has an annual wage of £9m.

But as things stand, that only makes him the FIFTH highest earning Premier League manager.

City boss Guardiola rakes in £19m a year – but is repaying the club in the form of Premier League titles.

The Spaniard is on course to secure City a fourth league in five seasons – although Liverpool are hot on their heels.

Speaking of Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp is the next biggest earner at £16m.

He is followed by Tottenham boss Antonio Conte who was handed a £15m contract when he succeeded Nuno Espirito Santo back in November.


Then there is a significant drop off down to Brendan Rodgers who earns £10m a year.

But that is still a cool £1m more a year than Ten Hag will receive.

Still, the new man will at least get more than his counterparts at Arsenal and Chelsea.

Mikel Arteta banks £8.3m annually while Thomas Tuchel is on £7m.

Meanwhile, Norwich and Brentford bosses Dean Smith and Thomas Frank are the joint-worst paid managers in England’s top flight.

The pair – who are in charge of newly-promoted outfits – earn £1.5m a year on their current deals.

They sit just below Brighton boss Graham Potter – who is one of the lowest paid managers in the Prem despite the stellar job he is doing at the Amex.
