Tottenham Hotspur will pay £10m of Mourinho’s wages at Roma


According to the UK Sun, Jose Mourinho will be paying £15 million as Roma manager next season. But Tottenham Hotspur will be responsible for £10 million of that.

After being fired from Spurs last month, the 58-year-old has quickly found a new role in Serie A.

Mourinho has signed a three-year deal with Roma. However, the first of those three years will be much more lucrative than the next two.

With a year left on his deal in north London when he was dismissed, his contract stated that Tottenham will pay out his deal if he did not get a new job. Or make up the shortfall if his new club was paying him less.

Roma agreed a deal to pay Mourinho £5m-per-year, meaning Spurs will have to shell out £10m for him to manage another club.

The fact Mourinho has taken a new job actually saves Spurs some cash. As they would have been paying him the full £15m next season, if he had not been given more work.
