Solskjaer was in charge at Old Trafford for 1,068 days, with his spell falling just short of the three-year mark after he was brought in on December 19, 2018.

He arrived initially on a temporary basis, but his impressive start of 14 wins in 19 games earned him a three-year contract in March 2019.

And that deal was extended by a further three years in the summer – which was netting him a cool £9m per year, as per 101 Great Goals.

The figure also equates to £156,751 per game or £286,242 per win.

Pochettino, who was with Southampton before joining Spurs, sits second, but made less than half of what Mourinho did.
