When Tottenham made Jose Mourinho their manager in the 2019/2020 season, we all knew it was a huge gamble.
The Special One has won trophies at every team he has managed, but he also has a history of falling out with the board easier than most managers.
There are some Spurs fans that would love to see the back of him, but it appears that they will have to put up with him for a while longer because of how much it will cost to fire him.
After leading Spurs to the Europa League last season, his team is now struggling in this campaign.
They had been top of the Premier League table before now, but their loss to Manchester City has left them several points behind in the race for the top four.
It is normal in these circumstances for talks of firing him to start making the rounds, but Spurs aren’t thinking about that yet, according to The Athletic.
The report says the former Chelsea and Inter Milan boss has a deal until 2023 at the Tottenham Stadium.
Even more importantly, he has no break clause in his current contract which means that Tottenham will hand him a significant payout if they fire him.
He makes £15million per year in London and he would be due a huge financial package if the Lilywhites pull the trigger on him.
It may not be what the Mourinho out brigade want to hear but for the rest of us, it is comforting to know that he will not be fired recklessly.
