The 8 biggest jackpots hit by sacked Premier League managers

Thomas Tuchel was sacked last Thursday from his position as Chelsea manager. But he wasn’t the one who left a Premier League club with the biggest severance package.

But the now ex-Chelsea manager is one of the Top 8 managers who have received the biggest severance pay. For some you will see in the ranking below, it’s a real jackpot. If Antonio Conte occupies the first place with his 30 million paid by Chelsea, we must also salute the accumulation of José Mourinho who received the most money thanks (or because) of these departures from Chelsea then Manchester United and Tottenham. For a total of approximately 56 million euros. A real pension…

Antonio Conte (Chelsea): 30 million euros

Arrived in 2016 at Chelsea, Antonio Conte could not have dreamed of a better start by offering the title of English champion to his new team in his first season. But then things go wrong. If the Italian technician signs a new improved contract, a year after his arrival, he will be sacked a few months later at the end of the 2017-2018 season. With a check for 30 million at stake.

Jose Mourinho (Manchester United): 22.3 million euros

Arrived at Old Trafford in 2016, Jose Mourinho signed an extension in January 2018 but left less than a year later. With a Europa League (2017), a European Super Cup (2017), and a League Cup (2017). The last trophies won to date by the Red Devils. Which will allow him to leave with a nice check for 22.3 million euros.

Jose Mourinho (Chelsea): 20.5 million euros

At the time, Jose Mourinho is the first manager appointed by Roman Abramovich who has just bought the club but who quickly grew tired of Claudio Ranieri already in place. In his first two seasons at Chelsea, he won the Premier League title twice. He failed in 2017 to make the consecutive treble and was fired in particular by his inability to win the Champions League, the ultimate dream of the Russian owner. His departure allows him to collect all the same 20.5 million euros. A first jackpot that will call for others for the Portuguese technician.

Jose Mourinho (Tottenham): 18.8 million euros

Already sacked by two clubs in the Premier League, the Portuguese technician returned to try his luck at Tottenham despite everything at the insistence of president Daniel Levy in November 2019. He made the promise on his arrival at the Spurs to offer a trophy quickly to the supporters Londoners. But a year and a half later, without succeeding, he left through the back door, leaving his team in 7th place and in the League Cup final. And leaves the only club in which the current Roma coach has never won anything.

Luis Felipe Scolari (Chelsea): 15.5 million euros

Haloed by fine performances at the head of the Brazilian (2002 world champion) and Portuguese (Euro 2004 finalist) selections, Luiz Felipe Scolari arrived at Chelsea in 2008 with a lot of ambition. He will remain in place only for 25 matches at the head of the Blues undermined by locker room problems with certain players whom he will designate a few years later as being Nicolas Anelka and Didier Drogba.

Thomas Tuchel (Chelsea): 14.8 million euros

Arrived during the 2021 season, Thomas Tuchel allows his new team to create a surprise by winning the Champions League at the end of the season. But the change of ownership under the backdrop of war in Ukraine sees his supporters (Marino Granovskaia, Petr Cech) leave the London club during the summer transfer window of 2022. Differences in point of view with the new owner Todd Boehly will be more fatal to him than defeat surprise in the Champions League against Dinamo Zagreb (1-0) a few days ago.

Mauricio Pochettino (Tottenham): 14.28 million euros

Arrived in 2018 to succeed Andre Villas-Boas, Mauricio Pochettino will do a good job at Tottenham. It will allow the club to play in the Champions League final in 2019. The only one to date for neighbor Arsenal. Despite a five-year contract in his pocket, he will be fired without qualms a few months after this success due to poor results in the Premier League.

Andre Villas-Boas (Chelsea): 13.7 million euros

Arrived with the nickname « Special Two » in reference to José Mourinho, Andre Villas-Boas replaces Carlo Ancelotti. He will do too little to get Chelsea off the ground during his presence at Stamford Bridge and will ultimately remain less than a season at the helm of the Blues. Replaced by Roberto Di Matteo, by default, the latter will allow Chelsea to win their first Champions League that season in 2012.
