Pep Guardiola is hell-bent on winning his sixth English Premier League title with Manchester City. Guardiola’s men outmuscled Manchester United 3-1 in a come-from-behind win in the coveted Manchester derby last night. Now, the Spanish boss has a shot at the continental treble once again after scaling the feat last year. Anyhow it is not just his trophy cabinet that is expanding over the years. The 53-year-old’s coffers are also expanding, thanks to his stint as Manchester City’s all-time highest-earning head coach.

Pep Guardiola always dominates the list of soccer’s most successful and highest-earning managers. With his City salary, Guardiola is the second top earner among soccer bosses. Anyhow, City is his third club as a manager. He had also spent his playing career in six different clubs. The earnings from these myriad stints have helped Guardiola boast a sizeable net worth among the soccer elites.

On the list of top-earning soccer coaches, Pep Guardiola is second only to Atletico Madrid’s Diego Simeone. As per various sources, Guardiola earns $21.6 million a year in salary from Manchester City. Simeone, who is just above him, earns $32 million a year. Guardiola has a contract with City that runs until 2025. And, he has not ruled out the chances of extending the contract. This means he would likely remain one of the top three big earners for the foreseeable future.

Meanwhile, Guardiola’s net worth is estimated at $126 million. He is the second-richest manager in the world after Diego Simeone. Jose Mourinho has enough bank balance to compete with the Spanish tactician. But he is yet to find a job after AS Roma’s sacking. Guardiola largely owes his impressive net worth to his stellar coaching stints with FC Barcelona, Bayern Munich, and Manchester City. He has won a whopping 37 titles with these three European powerhouses. Besides his coaching job, the Spaniard has shrewdly struck lucrative endorsement deals with certain big brands.
