Everything about European Football is now exorbitantly priced. From negotiating the deal to sign a Player, paying their release clause, negotiating a personal deal with the Player in question, paying the agents and scouts involved, these are procedures that have to be followed, and they don't come cheap, at all.
The appointment of a Manager doesn't cost as much as Signing Players because Managers might be tasked to oversaw the affairs of a club but they don't usually earn as much the apprentices they are tasked to look after.
The appointment of a Manager doesn't cost much, it's the firing of a Manager that is ridiculously expensive, how ironic is that. Jose Mourinho is a proof that it actually costs insane amount of money to Fire a Manager than to appoint one.
The Portuguese Gaffer has made a fortune from being Sacked by his employers. Having dubbed himself as the Special One in 2004 following his appointment by Roman Abramovich as Chelsea Manager, Jose Mourinho have had a successful career as a Manager winning titles at every club that he has Managed, except at Tottenham Hotspurs where he failed to guide Spurs to any title in his 18 months at the club.
Between 2004 and 2020, Jose Mourinho have been given jobs in the English premier league 4 times. Two times at Chelsea, another job at Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspurs.
According to Daily Mail, 90 Mins, Sport Bible, Evening Standard and Daily Star, Jose Mourinho has made a whopping £100million from getting sacked by Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspurs.
We'll discuss the breakdown of the money that the Portuguese Gaffer has made from losing his job. It's important to note that the terms of the contract of the Managers always include being compensated even if they get fired.
When Chelsea first terminated the appointment of Jose Mourinho in 2007, he was earning £5million every year at that time and he still had 3 years left on his contract. This meant that Chelsea would have to pay the Portugal National £15million when they fired him that time.
During Jose Mourinho's second spell at Chelsea, he was earning £13million annually at that time. At the time he was shown the door after a run of poor performances, he still had 4 years left before his contract expires. This means that Chelsea was obligated to pay Jose Mourinho for the remaining 4 years as compensation. If the Blues had paid him in full, that means he must have earned £52million then.
2. Manchester United
Jose Mourinho had 2 years left on his contract at Old Trafford when he was fired. The Red Devils were paying him £12million annually then. Jose Mourinho was eligible to receive £24million when he was fired by Manchester United in 2018.
3. Tottenham Hotspurs
According to Sport Bible, Jose Mourinho reportedly pocketed a whopping £20million when Tottenham Hotspurs Director Daniel Levy booted the Portugal National out earlier this year.
How great is club management in Europe? Apparently, it doesn't matter whether you win or lose because you get paid either way. And if you even managed to get fired, you get to earn your money in whole.
