Manchester United are second only to Tottenham Hotspur when it comes to board member pay in 2022.
According to Football Insider, Spurs have paid a record £6.8 million for their board, with Daniel Levy taking almost half of the pot.
United paid their board a total of £6m, with Richard Arnold taking almost £2m of that fee.
Arsenal are next with £4.3 million, while Liverpool are fourth with £3.4 million.
Fulham, Wolves, Leicester City and Newcastle United sit at the other end of the table.
Interestingly, Manchester City have not paid any of their directors in 2021-22, while chief executive Ferran Soriano is not listed as a director of the club.
Meanwhile, Brentford, Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Leeds United have not released their accounts for the financial year.
Given United’s global standing, it’s no surprise to see the club high on the list.
However, with United’s underperformance over the past decade, question marks remain over the value for money the directors are giving him.
Last year’s decision to hire Erik ten Haag looks to be one of the smartest moves the club has made in decades and the directors are desperate for a chance.
The Hague won United’s first trophy in six years and is close to adding to it at the end of the season.
United are still alive in two cup competitions and are still favorites to finish 4th in the Premier League.
