Leicester make Rodgers among world's highest paid managers

Leicester City have made Brendan Rodgers among the highest paid managers in the world.

The Sun says the 46-year-old is believed to have DOUBLED his previous salary at Leicester - taking from £5million-a-year to £10million.

This means that only old foes Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho are paid more than the Foxes gaffer.

Guardiola is the highest paid, earning an astonishing £20million-a-year at Manchester City - that's around £384,000-a-week.

While Mourinho is second, somehow having bagged himself a £15million-a-year contract at Spurs despite having been sacked by his last two clubs.

Behind Rodgers then, are the rest, including Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.
