AC Milan head coach Marco Giampaolo receives the seventh-highest salary of all managers in Serie A, a report claims.
The Rossoneri made the decision to replace Gennaro Gattuso with Giampaolo after the former left his position at the end of the 2018-19 season.
Giampaolo was previously at Sampdoria where he earned €1.1m-a-year (as per soccerlink), and has netted a pay rise to €2m-a-year with Milan according to the latest report.
La Gazzetta dello Sport state – as cited by Football Italia – that there are six coaches who earn more than Giampaolo does at Milan.
The list starts with Antonio Conte who earns a staggering €11m per year at Inter, which is double what Maurizio Sarri gets with Juventus (€5.5m).
Carlo Ancelotti of Napoli is in third at €5m, while Roma boss Paulo Fonseca and former Milan manager Sinisa Mihajlovic both earn €2m.
In sixth place is Atalanta’s Gian Piero Gasperini who was rewarded for an incredible top four finish last season with a new contract worth €2.5m-a-year.
Then comes Giampaolo, who earns the same as Coppa Italia winner Simone Inzaghi with €2m a season.
The other notable salaries include Fiorentina boss Vincenzo Montella, who receives €1.5m, and bottom-of-the-pile Igor Tudor.
The Udinese head coach earns €500,000 per year plus bonuses, and his side restricted Milan to zero shots on target in their 1-0 win over the Rossoneri in the opening game of the season.
