Tottenham will have to pay compensation much lesser than £30m if Mourinho is sacked

According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham will not have to pay the £30m as compensation to Jose Mourinho if the club sacks him due to certain clauses in his deal.

Jose Mourinho took over the reins at Tottenham Hotspur in November 2019 after Mauricio Pochettino was sacked. The Portuguese had a decent enough first season as he took the club to a sixth-place finish and Europa League football, as a consequence.

Things began with so much promise this term, with Spurs looking like contenders for the Premier League title. However, all that has faded away since the turn of the year, with the team now battling for a top-four place.

Last month also saw Tottenham get eliminated from the UEFA Europa League at the hands of Dinamo Zagreb. This led to increased pressure on Mourinho, with reports of a sack doing the rounds ever since.

Amidst this, it was also claimed that Tottenham would have to pay £30m as compensation if the club did go ahead and sack him at the end of the season. However, it is now being said that Tottenham may have to pay the Portuguese a much lesser amount than the one earlier reported.

Indeed, due to performance-related clauses in his contract, Mourinho would be entitled to much lesser than the £30m if Tottenham failed to qualify for top European competition for next season.

As things stand, Tottenham are fifth in the table and stand a realistic chance of finishing fourth or at least in the top six. That would mean qualification for either Champions League or Europa League. Slip further down the table though, and Mourinho’s compensation would take a hit.

Winning the Carabao Cup would get Tottenham into the inaugural UEFA Europa Conference League, but that will not be viewed as a top-level European competition. Daniel Levy is prepared to give Jose every chance to ensure that Spurs end the season on a successful note. Whether we do that though, remains to be seen.
