£288,000-per-week Jose Mourinho set for salary bonus if Tottenham make 2020-21 Champions League
By Rob S -

Jose Mourinho is said to be second only to Pep Guardiola on the list of the Premier League’s highest-paid managers.

And his pay packet will be even fatter if Spurs end the season in a Champions League qualification place.

It was claimed by The Sun shortly after Mourinho arrived in November that he had been handed a £15m salary – reportedly double that of Jurgen Klopp and just £5m shy of Guardiola’s yearly pay.

Should The Sun’s data be correct, that means Mourinho’s weekly wage equates to just over £288,000.

And now the Daily Mail report that Mourinho will pick up a £2m bonus should Spurs continue their run of playing in Europe’s top competition.

Former boss Mauricio Pochettino guided Spurs into the Champions League in four straight seasons, but left the club 11 points adrift of fourth place when he was sacked late last year.

The Mail claim that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has a history of offering cash bonuses to managers that hit targets.

Spurs are currently nine points below fourth-placed Chelsea with 16 rounds of fixtures left to play.

Mourinho will take charge of his 15th Spurs game in all competitions on Saturday when Watford come to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Under Mourinho, Spurs have won seven times, losing five and drawing two. His win percentage is therefore, 50% – the same as a certain Tim Sherwood.

    Difficult to grasp levy’s logic here. If it’s all about achieving top 4 then surely the sensible approach was to have offered Mourinho parity with klopp’s salary and agree to double it only if he makes top 4.

    How big an incentive is a 13% bonus likely to be when you’ve already guaranteed him 100% more than the dominant coach in football, regardless of where the team finish?

  2. Even now I cannot get my head around these obscene salaries when comparing them to the average salary of a hard working Joe.

  3. James McKevitt says:

    Getting desperate Mr Chairman, all those big companies who shelled out fortunes for corporate boxes to entertain their customers aren’t going to be happy with Europa League football instead of watching Barcelona, Real and Bayern.

  4. How strange, that even after all this time, how Timmy’s name and his record keeps cropping up.

  5. s1collin says:

    Levy likes to penny pinch when it comes to player transfers and therefore resulting in the club missing out on key players, but is happy to fritter millions away on the new manager. If you wanted further proof that he is pretty clueless..

  6. Cabspur says:

    Well he certainly won’t be picking up that bonus anytime soon.
