New Study Reveals How Much Mourinho Has Made From Being Sacked, It's 50 Million More Than Any Other Manager
A new study has revealed just how much Jose Mourinho has accumulated down the years from being sacked by football clubs.
The Portugese manager has received compensation from the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United, Spurs and Real Madrid after getting fired before his contract was due to expire.
Mourinho has earned over £100 million alone from his spell with English clubs, but new data from 101 Great Goals now reveals how much compensation he has received over the course of his managerial career.
His first stint in England came back in 2004, The Special One arriving at Chelsea on the back of a remarkable Champions League triumph with Porto.
He would go on to win two Premier League titles with the club before being sacked in 2007 following a poor start to the season.
Domestic titles would also be clinched with Inter Milan and Real Madrid in the years following, but in 2013, the 58-year-old decided to return to Stamford Bridge.
He lifted the Premier League trophy once again in 2015, but much like in his first stint, things quickly turned sour thereafter.
Fired unceremoniously later that year, Mourinho would find himself in Manchester by 2016, ready to succeed Louis van Gaal as United's head coach.
Jose lasted two years at Old Trafford, winning the League Cup, Europa League and the Community Shield during that time.
Once more, the honeymoon period couldn't last, and by late 2018, he was relieved of duties well before the scheduled end of his contract.
According to 101's investigation, Mourinho has made £97,674,480 from his three jobs in England over the past ten years.
That astronomical figure sees him sit at the very top of the pile for the amount earned by each Premier League manager who has been sacked since the beginning of the 2011/12 season.
Former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is a distant second on the list, although he is more than £50m behind Mourinho.
Overall, the data shows that the three-time Premier League winner spent a total of 2,315 days managing in England, earning an average of £42,192 a day. In that time, he took charge of 336 games, winning 209, and bagging £266,870 per match.
Therefore, his earnings add up to £97,674,480 across his three jobs, which makes Mourinho the most expensive manager in the history of the Premier League - and by a huge margin too.
