LONDON: Jose Mourinho is expected to receive £ 15million from Tottenham Hotspur following his sacking as the club’s manager yesterday.
The 58 -year -old Portuguese coach was sacked after poor performances this season. Tottenham’s hopes for the top four were dashed after being tied 2-2 with Everton on Friday.
After being knocked out of the last 16 of the Europa League despite a 2-0 advantage against Dinamo Zagreb-Mourinho’s last days are clearly getting darker.
But his dismissal was untimely after the club’s announcement of its involvement in the European Super League (ESL) controversy and less than a week before the League Cup final against Manchester City at Wembley.
However Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy chose to part ways with Mourinho. And initial reports claim the former Chelsea and Manchester United manager will be given a consolation of about 15 million pounds.
It means the Portuguese operator is now amassing 77.5 million pounds just from the proceeds of his dismissal. Previously, Roman Abramovich paid Mourinho 18 million pounds to leave Stamford Bridge.
After joining Inter Milan, Mourinho went to Real Madrid and won a title before fighting with Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos and Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Los Blancos squad can no longer stand him and the club’s president, Florentino Perez, paid about 17 million pounds for him to return to Chelsea.
