15 FOOTBALL MANAGERS WHO’VE MADE A FORTUNE BEING SACKED
1. LOUIE VAN GAUL – £6M
Sky Sports sources believed the Dutchman was informed on Sunday the same night after winning the FA cup that he would no longer be in charge of the club next season. He still has a year of his contract worth £6m and Utd will have to honour it. United then pounced on Jose Mourinho a couple of days later in a deal worth £18m, why can’t clubs just offer managers one year deals? If Jose does a Chelsea, how long will it be before he is in this article?
2. ROBERTO MARTINEZ – £4M
Its now confirmed that Everton FC have sacked their manager Roberto Martinez. Don’t feel sorry for him as he still has three years left on his contract worth millions. Its reported although not officially disclosed that Everton have agreed a compensation package worth around £4m. That’s more money than most of us ever earn in our lives! Not bad considering how poor the second half of the season has been for the toffee’s.
Some Everton fans were saying just six months ago that the recent football at Goodison Park was the best they had ever seen, then Roberto lost the fans and the dressing room, how things can change in a short period of time.
3. PELLEGRINI – £4.15M
Poor role Pellegrini has done a fair job at City but opportunity of head-hunting the best manager in the world by City (Pep Guardiola) has sparked his demise, don’t feel too sorry for him though he will walk away with £4.15 million pound in his back pocket!
4. KENNY DALGLISH – £8.5M
The former Liverpool superstar midfielder and ex manager came back to Liverpool at the owners request, after a reasonable run and a couple of rotten buys in the transfer market Liverpool let him go. The pay off for his troubles was a staggering £8.5 million pounds, which is historically more than he ever received as a player or manager at he club. Amazingly Kenny is still employed by Liverpool FC as an ambassador and is very much loved by the fans. Some say this pay off was probably overdue for his years of service to Liverpool Football Club.
