In recent years, supporters and media outlets have been interested in how much executives who run their favourite clubs earn when it comes to their annual salaries.
With the earnings of presidents and sporting directors becoming public, it adds to the pressure of building a winning team. Failure to do so and plenty will wonder if the person in charge is worth what he makes if the club doesn’t produce victories and trophies.
Italian media outlet Calcio e Finanza recently published Serie A executive’s salaries from the 2019/20 season.
When it comes to Lazio, Biancocelesti owner and president Claudio Lotito recently decided to give himself a salary along with several other directors. Lotito earned €600 thousand last season and is in the top ten when it comes to earnings from a club board member (6th to be exact).
The title of the highest-paid executive in Serie A goes to AC Milan CEO Ivan Gazidis, who made €3.15 million in 2019/20 to run the club that currently finds itself atop the Italian league. Following him is Hellas Verona President Maurizio Setti who made €3.061 million and Juventus Managing Director Fabio Paratici who made €2.8 million last season.
