Manchester United’s Norwegian boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has ample reasons to be smiling now as he is now tied down until 2024 and has the option of a further year after having signed a new contract with the club allegedly worth £10m per year (£200,000-per-week).
That’s a substantial increase on the £7.5m-per-year he was previously earning.
As per The Sun, Solskjaer is now the third highest-paid manager in the Premier League. View the top seven best-paid bosses in England’s top tier below:
6. Thomas Tuchel – £7m-per-year
6. Rafael Benitez – £7m-per-year
5. Marcelo Bielsa – £8m-per-year
3. Brendan Rodgers – £10m-per-year
3. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – £10m-per-year
2. Jurgen Klopp – £15m-per-year
1. Pep Guardiola – £20m-per-year
Although having been given a massive pay-rise Solskjaer’s wages are still nowhere near that of Guardiola’s, understandably. The Man City boss is on his own well-deserved esoteric perch above all others at £20m-per-year, double what Solskjaer is earning.
Jurgen Klopp also earns £5 million-per-year more than the Man United boss.
However, Solskjaer is earning a lot more than Tuchel, surprisingly, despite the German leading Chelsea to Champions League glory earlier this year.
