AS Roma new manager Jose Mourinho will receive £15m next season but Tottenham Hotspur will have to pay £10m of that money, according to report.
The Portuguese was sacked at Spurs last month and has quickly landed himself a new job in Serie A.
Mourinho has signed a three-year deal with Roma, but the first of those three years will be much more lucrative than the next two.
According to UK Sun , with a year left on Mourinho’s 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 ‘The Special One’ £5m-per-year, meaning Spurs will have to shell out £10m for Mourinho to manage another club.
The fact the 58-year-old 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.
