Tottenham can pay less than £30million in compensation if they sack Jose Mourinho due to performance clauses linked to European qualification. The Spurs boss is under increased pressure following Sunday’s disappointing 2-2 draw with Newcastle United.
Mourinho’s future is now uncertain following a difficult run that has seen them exit both the FA Cup and Champions League. It has been widely purported that the Special One would be entitled to at least £30million in a payout if he loses his job as he still has two years to run on a deal that is worth up to £15million a year.
Spurs face Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final at the end of the month, where victory would gain entry into the inaugural UEFA Europa Conference League.
According to Daily Mail, his basic pay is closer to £10million a season which would significantly lower any compensation payout in the event of Mourinho losing his job.
Levy wants to give Mourinho every opportunity to make a success of Tottenham’s season. Mourinho was not able to strengthen his squad the way he’d have liked to last summer due to the financial impact caused by the Covid crisis.
