Salaries Of Premier League Managers Revealed, As Ipswich Town Are Set To Make Kieran McKenna One Of The Highest-Paid Coaches In The Premier League


    Ipswich Town are set to make highly sought-after tactician, Kieran McKenna, one of the highest-paid managers in the Premier League.

    This is in a bid to keep the services of the former assistant manager of Manchester United, who has been linked with the managerial role at Chelsea, Brighton and a possible return to Old Trafford.

    McKenna guided the Tractor Boys to the Premier League after a 22-year absence, gaining back-to-back promotions.

    Kieran McKenna was already earning about £1.2 million annually at Ipswich Town, an amount which was one of the highest salaries in the Championship.

    Ipswich Town’s hierarchy are making efforts to ensure that he remains at the club, and they are set to offer him a staggering new contract worth £5 million per year over the next four campaigns.

    McKenna is yet to manage a game in the Premier League, but this amount will put him among the highest earners in the top-flight division.

    Who Is The Highest-paid Manager In The Premier League?

    Pep Guardiola leads the way in terms of the highest-paid managers in the Premier League, pocketing £20 million annually.

    Guardiola, who is arguably the best manager of his era, has continued to mastermind Manchester City’s success.

    The Spaniard guided the Cityzens to a treble in the 2022/23 season and also led the Manchester-based club to a fourth unprecedented Premier League title in May 2024.

    Mauricio Pochettino was previously the second best-paid manager in the Premier League with an annual salary of £10.4m, however, he has stopped earning that sum due to his exit from Chelsea on May 21, 2024.

    Enzo Maresca, who is expected to be his replacement could also be paid a hefty sum, although his contract details remain unknown.

    The departure of Pochettino has now seen Mikel Arteta ascend the ladder in terms of the highest-paid manager in the Premier League.

    Arteta takes home a whooping sum of £9.5 million annually as manager of Premier League runners-up Arsenal.

    Manchester United boss Erik Ten Hag earns £9 million yearly, while Arne Slot, who replaced Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool will pocket £6.85 million annually.

    Moreover, Unai Emery’s pay package has improved, with the Spaniard now earning £8 million annually after penning a contract extension at Aston Villa following Champions League qualification.

    Where Will Kieran McKenna Be On The List Of Highest-paid Managers In The Premier League

    Kieran McKenna will apparently be fitting into the list amongst the likes of Everton’s Sean Dyche and Spurs’ Ange Postecoglou, who both earn £5 million per year.

    The potential managerial shake-ups in the Premier League is expected to bring an alteration to the list of highest-paid managers in the division.

    Pep Guardiola Is The Highest-paid Manager In The Premier League

    Reports indicate that Bournemouth’s Andoni Iraola was the least-paid manager in the Premier League for the 2023/23 season.

    Iraola was earning £1 million annually – but he could have gotten himself an improved pay package after helping the Cherries amass their highest points in a single top-flight season (48 points from 38 matches).

    Julen Lopetegui, who replaced David Moyes at West Ham United, reportedly earns £4.3 million per year.

    Bournemouth also recently announced that Andoni Iraola has penned an extension until at least the end of the 2025-26 season.

    Relegated Burnley gaffer Vincent Kompany and Luton Town’s Rob Edwards also took home £2m annually.

    Meanwhile, the wages of Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder were pretty much unknown.

    It is uncertain if Southampton’s Russell Martin will get himself an improved pay package after guiding the club back to the Premier League following their 1-0 win over Leeds United.

    It will also be interesting to see how much Leicester City will pay Enzo Maresca’s replacement.
