Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola earned a stunning £120,000 more than Jurgen Klopp per Premier League win last season.
City clinched a second successive league title on the final day of the 2021/22 campaign, where they finished one point ahead of Liverpool in dramatic fashion. Guardiola’s side looked to have slipped up at the final hurdle when Reds legend and Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard took a 2-0 lead at the Etihad.
But the defending champions launched one of the most spectacular comebacks in Premier League history by scoring three goals in six minutes, handing Guardiola yet another league title over his rival Klopp. And the Spaniard is now understood to have also trumped the German when it came to earnings.

The pair are widely considered to be two of the greatest managers in football and go head-to-head in their pursuit of silverware every season. But City’s financial might not only makes them more successful than the Anfield club in recent years, but also means their manager is better rewarded.
According to SportingPedia, Guardiola earned £19.2million last season while Klopp took home £15m. Pep’s 29 victories mean he earned a staggering €782,069 (£663,000) per win last season.
That figure exceeded Klopp’s own €638,571 (£541,500) per victory, of which he had one fewer than the suave Catalan.

Both were in the top-four for highest-paid managers in football. Guardiola finished behind only Diego Simeone’s gargantuan £34m, with the Atletico Madrid boss raking in £1.6m for each of his 21 La Liga wins.
In third place was Tottenham’s Antonio Conte on a salary of £15m and £690,000-per-win. The Italian proved to be worth every penny as Spurs bounced back from mediocrity to secure Champions League football ahead of north London rivals Arsenal.
