Josep Guardiola has the opportunity to revalidate his position on the podium of the best football coaches in the world. In his career, first as a player, and now as a coach, he has managed to amass a fortune that, depending on the source, could range from 36 to 46 million euros, a figure that equates him to the one who embodies the role of rival and sports nemesis: Jose Mourihno.

Guardiola's current agreement with Manchester City, which he signed in 2018 and ends this year, is estimated at 20 million pounds per year, that is, in the three years of validity he will have pocketed 60 million pounds (about 69 million of approximately euros, at the current exchange rate), without counting the income derived from the sports sponsorships that it enjoys.

With 500,0000 euros less than last year. Simeone is the main star of Atleti.
