Tottenham will still pay Jose Mourinho £10MILLION next season… twice as much as new club Roma

JOSE MOURINHO was appointed Roma boss yesterday — but it will still cost Spurs £10million.

The Special One landed a new job just 15 days after being sacked by Tottenham.

Jose Mourinho will rake a big pay-off from Spurs even though he will become Roma’s manager from next season.

He has signed a three-year deal with the Italians worth £5m a year — compared to the annual £15m he was getting at Spurs.

But as part of his severance, the North Londoners agreed to pay him the shortfall in salary if he took another post on lower wages before the end of his contract next summer.

That means when Mourinho takes over at the Stadio Olimpico this summer he will receive £5m from Roma and, for next season only, £10m from Tottenham.

But Spurs have saved £5m on what they would have paid him had he not accepted another job.

The ex-Porto, Chelsea, Inter, Real Madrid and Manchester United boss is keen to show he is not at fault nor been affected by his shock departure  after just 17 months in charge.
