Highest-paid manager: Pep Guardiola's massive bonus for winning UEFA Champions League revealed

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola is one of the most successful coaches in history. He is one of only 6 coaches to have won a European treble (the UEFA Champions League, their domestic League competition, and any domestic cup).  The other managers to have achieved this feat are Sir Alex Ferguson, Jose Mourinho, Jupp Heynckes, Luis Enrique, and Hansi Flick. He has also won League titles in Spain, Germany and England, building utterly dominant teams in every country he has managed. 

The 50-year-old Catalan coach moved to Manchester City in 2016 after spending 3 seasons at German Champions, Bayern Munich. Since his move, Guardiola has won 3 English Premier League titles, 1 FA Cup, and 4 Carabao Cup titles. He also led Manchester City to the UEFA Champions League final in 2021, losing to Chelsea by a 1-0 scoreline. Safe to say, Guardiola's stay at the Etihad Stadium has been successful through the UEFA Champions League is still an outstanding target to reach. 

In November 2020, Pep Guardiola committed his immediate future to the Manchester City cause, signing a two-year extension with the option of an extra year. In his latest deal, the Spanish manager received a significant pay raise from €17m to €22m for his annual salary. This means that the manager takes home €1.8m monthly or €423,000 weekly. This figure makes him the best-paid manager in the world, beating Jose Mourinho (€17.5m) and Diego Simeone (€15m) by some healthy margin. 

Apart from an increase in his annual salary, the City manager was also given an increase on the bonuses he'd get if he achieves some of the stated targets. For example, the bonus for winning the UEFA Champions League was increased from €7.5m to €10m. Pep Guardiola and his team will strive to win the UEFA Champions League title this season. The Catalan coach has not lifted Europe's biggest trophy since his triumph in the 2010/11 season at FC Barcelona.
