Manuel Pellegrini is a deserving addition at the 9th position in the list of the highest paid football managers of 2016. The EPL’s fourth-most valuable team has been reputed for spending big behind the hired folks since Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan bought the team back in 2009, and that is applicable for players and coaches both. One of the many former Real Madrid managers still engaged in coaching, Pellegrini’s first season with City got off to a rather rough start with four early and shocking losses, but the team turned things around in time on the way to a Champions League qualification and a potential EPL title.

8. Sven-Goran Eriksson – £5.9-million
