Mourinho takes Tottenham job to become second highest paid manager

Jose Mourinho has taken the Tottenham job to become the second highest paid manager in the game.

TMW says Mourinho has become the second highest-paid manager in world football after signing a monstrous £15million-a-year contract to become Tottenham manager. It has emerged Mourinho will earn almost double the wage of his predecessor Mauricio Pochettino after taking charge at the north London club on Wednesday morning.

This is the first time in Tottenham's history that they have appointed a manager of Mourinho's pedigree - he has won 25 trophies in his managerial career - and it seems they have paid a hefty price.

He still trails nemesis Pep Guardiola though with the Manchester City boss signing a new two-year contract in 2018 worth £20m per season.
