Antonio Conte has become Serie A's highest-paid manager after leaving Chelsea for Inter Milan over the summer.
The Italian was sacked by the Stamford Bridge club in July 2018 after leading the club to the Premier League title in his first season in charge and an FA Cup success the following year.
After a year away from football, Conte has returned to management to succeed Luciano Spaletti at San Siro. La Gazzetta dello Sport has revealed that the 50-year-old tops the earnings charts for managers in Serie A, scooping €11m annually.
To put those figures into context, that is more than double the salary Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri earns.
💰 🇮🇹 Top-earning managers in Serie A
- 🇮🇹 Antonio Conte (Inter) - €11m
- 🇮🇹 Maurizio Sarri (Juventus) - €5.5m
- 🇮🇹 Carlo Ancelotti (Napoli) - €5m
- 🇷🇸 Siniša Mihajlović (Bologna) - €3m
- 🇵🇹 Paulo Fonseca (Roma) - €3m
The lowest-earning manager in the division is Igor Tudor, who only takes home €500,000 annually plus bonuses in his role as Udinese manager.
Inter will be hoping that their massive wage-bill will help them mount a proper challenge for the Serie A title, as well as a run in the Champions League.
Inter faces Udinese this coming weekend with the Serie A resuming after the international break.
