Net worth of Premier League’s Big Six managers – from Guardiola to Arteta
Though they manage the biggest clubs in the Premier League, the salaries and net worths of the so-called Big Six’s bosses differ wildly.
Thomas Tuchel, Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Mikel Arteta and Nuno Espirito Santo are the coaches currently in charge of those clubs.
Some are paid far more than the others, though net worth also takes into account past earnings and any current sponsorship endorsements
As such, it is possible for Solskjaer, who is one of the highest paid managers in the top-flight, to have one of the smallest net worths among the Big Six coaches.
Here, Daily Star Sport looks at the net worths of all the Big Six’s managers…
Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool – £36million
Reportedly blowing his rivals out of the water is Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, who had an unremarkable playing career.
Klopp has only had three jobs since he retired as a player, with stints at Mainz and Borussia Dortmund coming before his current spell at Anfield.
After guiding the Reds to the Champions League and Premier League titles in successive years, Klopp’s net worth sky rocketed to more than £35m, the highest of the Big Six managers.
But his wealth has also come from several off the field interests, including lucrative endorsement deals.
Pep Guardiola, Manchester City – £30million
Barcelona 'cannot afford Raheem Sterling' with La Liga club owing £100m in transfer fees
Unlike Klopp, Pep Guardiola enjoyed a successful playing career, winning six La Liga titles with Barcelona.
Guardiola has become one of the greatest managers of all time since his retirement, lifting 14 trophies while in charge of his former club.
The Catalan coach has continued to be successful at Manchester City, winning the Premier League three times.
A salary of more than £20m at the Etihad Stadium has helped him to develop a net worth in the region of £30m, the second highest among Big Six coaches.

Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea – £15million

Thomas Tuchel’s net worth has mainly come from him coaching career, with the German’s time as a player being cut short at the age of just 24.
Since his retirement from playing, Tuchel has taken on some of the biggest jobs in world football, including Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain.
He replaced Frank Lampard as Chelsea boss in January 2020 and since then has been handed a contract extension which included a bumper pay rise to £7m-a-year.
That has helped Tuchel to develop a net worth in the region of £17m, to place him joint-third among the Big Six managers.
Mikel Arteta, Arsenal – £15million

He may be the youngest boss in the Big Six, but Mikel Arteta has a sizeable net worth, despite the Arsenal job being his first in management.
Arteta replaced Unai Emery at the Gunners at the end of 2019, earning an annual salary in the region of £5m.
The Spaniard enjoyed a successful playing career, with lucrative contracts at Everton, where he was the club’s highest earner, and Arsenal.
The Arsenal boss is private about his business, but it is estimated that he has a net worth of roughly £15m.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Manchester United – £2million

He might be the third-highest paid manager in the Premier League, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s net worth is relatively small compared to his Big Six rivals.
The Norwegian was appointed Manchester United boss in December 2018 on an interim basis before being handed the job permanently.
Though he has failed to win a trophy during his time at Old Trafford, Solskjaer was given a new deal in the summer, with an annual salary of £10m.
This does not correlate to his net worth though, with the former striker estimated to be valued at around £2m, a significant decrease from the £10m he was worth in 2010.
Nuno Espirito Santo, Tottenham Hotspur – £1.1million

The news that Nuno Espirito Santo has the smallest net worth of the Big Six managers will come as little surprise.
Nuno is the least well-known of the members of this list, with his managerial career taking in stops at Rio Ave, Valencia and Wolves.
He was a rather underwhelming appointment for Tottenham fans in the summer when he became the permanent replacement to Jose Mourinho.
The Portuguese coach has a relatively small net worth that is valued in the region of £1.1million.
