Mark Hughes is rich

Footballers are paid too much except for Mario Balotelli who should be paid whatever he wants because he's nice and not boring.  It turns out managers also get paid an awful lot of money.  Who knew?

In a list compiled by Futebol Finance, and from a story that I have completely stolen from, all the best paid managers in the world have been listed in numerically earned order showing just who gets paid the most.  Unsurprisingly Jose Mourinho is the best paid, raking in about £8.4million every year and he is closely followed by Pep Guardiola and Guus Hiddink.  "Fair enough", I hear you say.  Then we jump down to QPR, who let me remind you are fucking terrible, and who have decided to pay Mark Hughes £3million a year to let him work his magic.  If by magic you mean 'get them relegated'.

What I think we should all learn from this is that Mark Hughes has a good agent.  Also something important..... like....... recycling.  Remember to recycle things properly or the world will explode!

I'm going to use this video as part of my clever exit strategy.
