Jose Mourinho’s total earnings from being hired and fired by English clubs are incredible


Jose Mourinho is back in management folks, and the world is a better place for it.

The Special One got his Tottenham Hotspur reign off to a winning start this weekend, immediately halting a staggering winless streak on the road that stretched all the way back to January.

It all started so very well for the Portuguese too, as his new side cruised into a three-goal lead early in the second half, only for Spurs to do what they do best and let the opposition right back into the game.

Mourinho is a serial winner and always seems to find a way to get his hands on silverware wherever he may go.

That is why the Portuguese maestro is always at the top of the wanted list whenever a top managerial slot opens up in the Premier League and beyond - he is just very good at what he does.

Such experience doesn't come cheap though, and when Mourinho's genius tips to the other end of the scale, getting rid of it is an equally costly venture.

So just how much money have Premier League clubs spent on their various Mourinho adventures?

Let's have a look.


Chelsea FC press conference

Mourinho made his first appearance on England shores at Chelsea in 2004, spending Roman Abromivich's billions as he built one of the most formidable sides on the continent.

His initial deal was worth £5 million per year but, after a falling out with the Russian oil baron he was sent packing, with the Blues reportedly shelling out a staggering £23.1million to Jose and his staff.

His second spell at the Blues came after Mourinho's European conquests saw him rake in the silverware in Italy and Spain. 

He signed at the west London club for a deal worth £8.5 million per year and delivered a title in 2015.

As was to be expected though, Mourinho's tenure was cut short after a run of poor results - he was given the sack with Chelsea having to pay the Portuguese and his staff £8.3 million to send them on their way.

Manchester United


Perhaps one of the most controversial moments in Mourinho's career came when he decided to sign on as Manchester United boss following the sacking of Louis van Gaal in 2016.

However, when you consider the fact that the Manchester giants were coughing up £12 million a year for his services, you can hardly blame him.

His relationship with fans and the team soon soured though and once again Mourinho was shown the door by an English team.

United had to be sure they wanted Mourinho gone though, and were even willing to part with an eye-watering £19.6 million to see the back of him in December 2018.



Now, Mourinho has landed the most lucrative job of his entire career, with Spurs stumping up a whole  £15 million annually in a three-year deal.

If the 56-year-old can finally deliver silverware to the Tottenham Stadium though, it will be entirely worth the massive wages.

With Mourinho at the helm, one thing is for certain; it's going to be one hell of a ride.
