During his managerial career, renowned Portuguese coach Jose Mourinho is thought to have made over $101 million only by being fired by teams.

After parting ways with Italian team Roma on Tuesday, Mourinho was fired for the sixth time in his career. The club had a dismal season in the Serie A, finishing in ninth place.

Although his contract with Roma is set to expire in June of this year, Roma has chosen to fire him “with immediate effect.”

The Daily Mail claims that Mourinho received an astounding $101 million in total compensation following six firings.

Chelsea gave him $22.5 million of that amount in 2007 and then another $10.5 million in 2015.

Chelsea gave him $22.5 million of that amount in 2007 and then another $10.5 million in 2015.

Mourinho was paid $21.5 million in 2013 following his dismissal from Real Madrid. When he left Manchester United in 2018, he received $25 million in compensation, which was his largest payout.

Subsequently, he oversaw Tottenham Hotspurs for 17 months until being fired and taking his $19 million with him.

He was paid $3.7 million by Roma when he was let go on Tuesday.

When it comes to compensation for being sacked, no other coach has received even close to the sum that Mourinho has received throughout his career. This has made him more than twice as much as anyone else.

Antonio Conte, with $47 million, is in second place behind him; of that amount, $33 million came from Chelsea in 2018.

Mourinho signed a three-year contract to join Roma in 2021. The 60-year-old manager assisted Roma in winning their first-ever European championship, the 2021–2022 European Conference League. Mourinho guided Roma to the Europa League final the following season, but they were defeated by Sevilla on penalties.

Roma hasn’t played well at all this season. Despite having the third-highest payroll in the league, they finished ninth in Serie A. 

Roma lost six goals and received nine less points during this stretch of the season than they did the previous one. They also failed to win their Europa League group despite playing weaker opponents, losing to city rival Lazio in the Coppa Italia.

Shortly after dismissing Mourinho, Roma declared that their legendary player Daniele De Rossi will take over as manager in an acting capacity for the remainder of the campaign.

Referred to as “The Special One” by the press, Mourinho holds numerous accolades and is regarded as one of the most exceptional managers in history. His two greatest accomplishments are winning the UEFA Champions League with Porto in 2003–2004 and the Triple Crown with Inter in 2009–2010.
