Jol due hefty compo from Spurs sacking

Martin Jol would be due a major payday if he was sacked by Tottenham.

If Jol does go Tottenham will have to pay a heavy price as the Dutchman has a clause in his contract promising him £5.2m in compensation, according to the London Evening Standard.

It was believed that Jol would receive around £4m due to the near two years left on his contract.

But it is understood a deal was struck between Jol and Spurs 18 months ago when Newcastle and Ajax were interested in him.

Tottenham inserted a clause in his contract demanding they be paid £5.2m in compensation by any club that prised the 51-year-old away.

A source close to Jol confirmed that his agent Mino Raiola ensured the package worked both ways and that he would receive the same sum should Spurs end his reign prematurely.
