Former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has earned himself almost £100million from during his time in charge of Chelsea, United and Tottenham Hotspur.
That is according to data collected in a recent study by 101 Great Goals who have dived deep into the figures concerning the Portuguese chief’s time in the Premier League over the last decade.
Mourinho first arrived in England in 2004, spending three years in charge of Chelsea, helping them win six major trophies, including two Premier League titles. After spells in charge of Inter Milan and Real Madrid, the now-Roma boss returned to Stamford Bridge in 2013 for another crack at the whip.
After his second stint with Chelsea came to an end in December 2015, Mourinho was appointed United manager in May 2016. His time at Old Trafford saw him win three trophies, before being sacked in December 2018, following a 3-1 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield.
Less than a year after being dismissed by United, Mourinho took charge of Tottenham in November 2019, but was sacked in April this year, just days before the Carabao Cup final.
Although his four spells in England saw him win a total of 11 major trophies, all four of his positions saw him sacked and also gain huge financial payoffs, 101 Great Goals’ study has unearthed.
According to the investigation, Mourinho, who led United to the UEFA Europa League title in 2017, has made £97,674,480 from his three jobs in England in the last ten years. That staggering figure sees him sit at the very top of the pile for the amount earned by each Premier League manager sacked since the beginning of the 2011/12 season, with Mauricio Pochettino coming second, but more than £50million behind him.
The contract details sourced for each manager came from news articles and transfermarkt and the research has shown which managers made the most money despite experiencing troubles in their jobs.
According to the data discovered, Mourinho, who was in charge of a Premier League club in the last ten years for a total of 2,315 days, earned an average of £42,192 a day. In all, he took charge of 336 games, winning 209, and bagged £266,870 per match.
Furthermore, that price was raised to £467,342 for every victory he secured.
Therefore, his total earnings of £97,674,480 across his three jobs, have made him the most expensive manager in the history of the Premier League by quite some distance.
As well as earning the above figure, Mourinho has also earned a combined payout of around £46.2million.
Mourinho is currently in charge of Roma and has won ten of his first 18 games at the helm in all competitions.
