Tottenham may have to pay around £30m to sack Jose Mourinho

Tottenham declining

It’s fair to say that Tottenham are enduring a fairly poor stint under Jose Mourinho.

The Lilywhites were briefly top of the Premier League table several months ago.

Since, though, they have experienced nothing short of a collapse.

As of writing, Spurs sit in 9th place in the Premier League, six points adrift of a top-four spot.

And though six points doesn’t sound like too much ground to makeup, Tottenham will need all of Aston Villa, Everton, Liverpool and West Ham to slip up considerably, too, if they hope to clinch Champions League football.

It would also require the north Londoners to put together a decent run of their own, something which, at present, seems highly unlikely, taking into account the fact that they have picked up just a solitary win from their last six across all competitions. And even that came against a very poor West Brom side.

The price of sacking Jose Mourinho

With Tottenham in the midst of such a bad run of form, it is unsurprising to see some fresh names linked with the club’s bench.

Both Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers and RB Leipzig’s Julian Nagelsmann are said to have admirers at Spurs.

However, though Spurs probably wouldn’t struggle too much to find a decent coach to replace Mourinho, should they choose to do so, it is expected to set them back a decent chunk of change.

According to a recent report from ESPN, chairman Daniel Levy wants to wait until the end of the season before deciding to sack Jose Mourinho or not.

It is added that reports in Portugal claiming it would cost Spurs around £30m to sack the Portuguese now are ‘broadly accurate’.
