Claudio Ranieri’s feat in leading Leicester to the Premier League title was remarkable but so too is his salary by football standards. One of Statista’s recent infographics featured in the indy100 shows that Ranieri was paid £1.5 million this season, roughly the same amount as Alan Pardew at Crystal Palace. Ranieri has reportedly received a £1.7 million bonus for winning the league and is due a new deal worth £3 million next year. However, he is still paid far less than Arsene Wenger or Louis van Gaal.
This chart shows Claudio Ranieri’s salary compared to other Premier League managers at the start of the 2015/2016 season.
