It is safe to say, Jose Mourinho has traveled the world a bit more for reasons both good and bad. The Portuguese manager won the coveted UEFA Champions League title with FC Porto back in the day and entered the pantheon of the all-time great coaches. However, those days are a distant memory for the ‘Special One’ now.

Things have gone south for the talented manager who now plies his trade with the Italian side, FC Roma. Although he won 10 games out of the 18 available, he seems to have lost his charm. However, a shining light would be the money he received when sacked by previous clubs.

Jose Mourinho’s payment after sacking ranks first as the highest-earned manager in the world. From his time at Chelsea, Manchester United, and Tottenham Hotspur, Mourinho earned millions through the termination of his contract.

Jose Mourinho earns a lot

According to a recent study, the manager sits on top after earning £97,674,480 from being sacked from his three jobs in England. PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino sits in second place after earning more than £50million. Having spent 10 years in England managing different clubs, he reportedly earned an average of £42,192 from a total of 2,315 days.

Likewise, he took charge of 336 games and won 209 matches while earning £266,870 per match. That amount would be increased with each victory to £467,342. Undoubtedly, he is the most expensive manager ever in the English Premier League who also earned a total payout of £46.2million.

Those are monstrous numbers. However, with many teams still favoring his defensive approach and his charisma, Roma would hope to avoid sacking him because of his recent record.

Mourinho’s recent record

After arriving from Porto in 2004, he put Chelsea on the map by winning two consecutive Premier League titles. He won six major trophies in three years but left for Inter Milan shortly after. There he won the treble as Inter became the first Italian side to achieve this feat, with Mourinho at the helm. He then left for Real Madrid and won the La Liga title in 2012. This made him one of the greatest coaches in the world, as he won four league titles in four different countries.

Soon after, he returned for a spell at Chelsea and won another league title with the club. A legendary career, however, dropped off too soon. In 2016, Manchester United hired him and he gave them three trophies during his time there. A run of poor results saw him getting sacked as he moved to Tottenham Hotspur. But, he lost control of the dressing room eventually and was dismissed from his position soon there as well.

Currently, Mourinho coaches Roma, where he hopes to find his lost mojo back. With the passion and determination being shown out in Italy, time will tell whether Mourinho can get his charm back or will he get richer in not the best possible way.
