REVEALED: Highest Grossing 2021/22 Serie A Managers

Calcio e Finanza, the Italian tabloid that sheds light on the financial happenings in football among other things, has revealed the top paid managers in the Italian top-flight – with majority of the highest earners unsurprisingly being coaches of teams on the top end of Serie A.

The first place is jointly held by two tacticians in Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri and Roma newcomer Jose Mourinho, who earn €7m net per season each, much higher than what their predecessors Andrea Pirlo (€1.8m) and Paulo Fonseca (€2.5m) earnt.

The Juventus-Roma duo are closely followed by Inter’s Simone Inzaghi and Lazio’s Maurizio Sarri – who individually pocket €4m and €3m. The Nerazzurri have significantly lowered their managerial wage, having paid Antonio Conte around €14m for his exploits last season.

The shocking entry is perhaps Milan tactician Stefano Pioli, who sits in 7th place, earning €2m net per season, €200,000 lesser than 6th placed Gian Piero Gasperini.

According to the report, there has been a 5% increase in the aggregate salaries of managers in the league, from €37.8m in 2020/21 to approximately €40m currently in the 2021/22 season.
