England manager Roy Hodgson will be the highest paid manager at Euro 2016, according to The Sun, despite never winning a major honour and the Three Lions only being fifth favourites to win the tournament.

The 68-year-old, currently on £3.9 million-per-year, infamously finished bottom of Group D at the 2014 World Cup as group favourites alongside Italy, who were also eliminated behind Uruguay and Costa Rica.

The Football Association, to the dismay of many, stood by Hodgson after England's disastrous campaign in Brazil but to his credit, he responded and guided his side through the Euro qualifying stages undefeated, with maximum points and a goal difference of +28.

Hot on Hodgson's heels salary wise is Chelsea target and Italy manager Antonio Conte on £3.6 million, whilst Turkey manager Fatih Terim, whose side has failed to qualify for five of the last seven major tournaments, earns £2.8 million.

Earning £0.3 million-per-year less (£2.5 million) is Germany's Joachim Low, who famously guided Germany to the 2014 World Cup in style.

And a further £0.1 million below (£2.4 million) is Vicente del Bosque, winner of the 2010 World Cup and Euro 2012 with his native Spain. His side are 11/2 to win this summer and third favourites.

Next up are favourites France, whose manager - Didier Deschamps - earns a modest £1.6 million-per-year.

Thereafter, Marcel Koller (Austria), Fernando Santos (Portugal), Martin O'Neill (Republic of Ireland) and Vladimir Petkovic (Switzerland) round off the top ten, earning between £1.2 million and £594,000-per-year.

England fans will only hope Hodgson's lucrative wages translate into success this summer. The Three Lions are currently 12/1 to lift the trophy.
