Jose Mourinho’s appointment at AS Roma will save Tottenham Hotspur millions of pounds in compensation. The former Spurs boss who was sacked last month will replace current Roma manager Paulo Fonseca at the end of the season.

The 58-year-old was due around 18 months’ worth of salary around £16million from Tottenham following his sacking last month, but his decision to accept the Roma role from next season will see him lost a huge amount of money.





According to the Telegraph, throughout his managerial career, Mourinho has received over £60m in compensation payments. When relieved of his duties at Manchester United in 2018, he received an eye-watering sum of £19.6m.
