Antonio Conte has already joined the elite club of best-paid managers in the Premier League following his arrival at Tottenham Hotspur.
Conte was confirmed new Tottenham boss barely 48 hours after the dismissal of Nuno Espirito Santo.
TUKO.co.ke reported Espirito was shown the door after registering a string of poor results that saw him pick just five wins in the league in 10 matches.

However, in a sudden turn of events, the veteran Italian tactician has accepted to take charge at the north London club for the next 18 months.
The Sun reports the 52-year-old put pen to paper on the contract thought to be worth £15million (around KSh 2.2 billion) per year.
