Former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has been named on the list of the top 20 highest-paid managers on the world football stage.

The ex-Blues manager made the list at number 13 with the total income of £9.7m.

Italian tactician Antonio Conte resumed his post as the Chelsea manager shortly after he led his country to the quarterfinals at the 2016 European Championship.

Conte led Chelsea to the Premier League title in his first season at the club before winning the FA Cup title in his second season at the club.

Failure to secure Champions League football in his second season at the club played a major role in his dismissal last summer despite the fact that he had one year left on his then contract with Chelsea.

Both parties are still at loggerheads over his severance payment and a Premier League tribunal was recently held to determine the verdict on the case between Chelsea and Antonio Conte.

Chelsea swiftly replaced him with compatriot Maurizio Sarri last summer but the former Napoli manager has not had the best of times at the club.

Chelsea fans have already demanded that Sarri be sacked with the West Londoners struggling to qualify for the Champions League via the league route.
