AC Milan – Stefano Pioli in top 4 highest-paid Serie A managers

AC Milan boss Stefano Pioli is ranked fourth on the list of highest-paid Serie A managers, with the Italian tactician’s salary being relatively low compared to other colleagues at the top.

Calcio e Finanza has produced a list of the Serie A coaches’ salaries for the 2023-24 season, with some of the big names making eyes roll since the figures do not match the current performances.

AC Milan – Stefano Pioli in top 4

Pioli has been delivering since he took over Rossoneri, having clinched the Italian top flight in 2021/22 before taking his side to the first UEFA Champions League semifinal in almost two decades.

But the 57-year-old boss is far from making the top 3 of highest-paid managers of the league.

The list includes new names, such as Rudi Garcia, who replaced Luciano Spalletti at Napoli, and those at the promoted clubs.

AC Milan went through the summer bringing heavy reinforcements with ten signings during the most significant transfer window. So far, the squad that Pioli assembled looks like a serious contender for titles this season.

In ranking coaches’ salaries, Max Allegri (Juventus) and José Mourinho (Roma) are surprisingly at the top, with salaries worth €7m net.

Rudi Garcia, who took Napoli to their first league title in 33 years, humbly sits at #5 with €3m – the same amount Gian Piero Gasperini receives at Atalanta.
