Premier League table remains the same as we head to match-day 23. Liverpool still has 4 points caution at the top but Manchester City is looking dangerous at the moment. Manchester United form is sending shock waves towards Arsenal and Chelsea. Tottenham Hotspurs fans will be worried about their season after Harry Kane injury. This only means more twists and turns as the League enters the homestretch. Today, we want to turn our attention to Coaches. Let us see who is leading in the money League at the moment.

Liverpool and Barcelona Coaches Jurgen Klopp and Ernesto Valverde take home £7 Million each per year. The two are doing much better than several other managers ahead of them on this list but when they signed for their current clubs, the bargaining power was not on their side. The two are top of their respective leagues at the moment.
5. Mauricio Pochettino- £8.5 Million

Tottenham Hotspurs boss Mauricio Pochetino takes home £8.5 Million per year at the moment. The Argentine has been linked with a summer move to Manchester United. He knows a move to Old Trafford promises him a bigger cheque and more resources to sign big stars. However, a deal he signed last season that ties him to the club for few more years might become a stumbling block. To get his services, Red Devils might need to pay over £50 Million as compensation. If Ole Gunnar continues to do well, there is no way Ed Woodward will spend this kind of money for a manager.
4. Carlo Ancelotti- £9 Million

Napoli wanted another big manager to fill the gap left behind by Maurizio Sarri last summer. They turned to one of the most successful managers in the game Carlo Ancelotti. This was not going to be cheap for them. This explains why he takes home £9 Million. Good Coaches are expensive and hard to find. They are second behind Juventus in Serie A table.
