While the details of Bielsa’s salary will not be released, the Daily star reports that he has made £ 6 million ($ 8 million) a year, which is the equivalent of £ 3 million ($ 4 million) after taxes.
Such a salary would put the Argentine on a higher level than English boss Gareth Southgate and slightly lower than Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, who makes £ 10 million ($ 12 million) annually.
However, it’s significantly less than what Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho made, with the Catalans and Portuguese being paid £ 15m ($ 19m) a year each.
While we don’t know what Bielsa’s net worth is, such a salary suggests that it is certainly in the millions.

What is Marcelo Bielsa’s nickname?
Bielsa’s nickname is “El Loco”, Spanish for “The Madman” or “The Crazy One”. In some translations it also means “The Fool”.
He was given the nickname because of his eccentric personality, which has resulted in a number of unusual or “crazy” scenarios throughout his career.
One such example is when he visited teenager Mauricio Pochettino’s home at 1am to inspect his legs and convince his parents to let him come to Rosario – 150 km away – to play for Newell.
Another legend tells that Bielsa allegedly threatened to pull on a grenade to disperse a group of disgruntled fans who reportedly came to his house after a poor result.
His unpredictability is a big part of the perception of him as El Loco, as Lazio can testify that the Argentine quit his job after just two days.
Indeed, there were many examples of his unusual personality even during his time in England.
