Tottenham Hotspur have paid more money to managers than any other club in the Premier League. The North Londoners only recently sacked previous manager Nuno Espirito-Santo, and replaced him with former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte.

The Italian became the fourth Tottenham manager in two seasons, after Jose Mourinho, interim boss Ryan Mason, and Santo.

He also signed an 18-month-deal worth an eye-watering £20m per season, meaning the former Inter Milan boss is now the joint highest earning manager in the division.

His track record of successfully turning around the fortunes of struggling sides and turning them into contenders overnight is why Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is paying him the big bucks.

However, the manager merry go round in North London has become very out of hand in recent weeks, as they have now paid out more money to sacked managers than any other team in the Premier League era, according to 101 Great Goals.

According to the research, it is claimed Tottenham have paid out £85,919,178 to managers who were eventually shown the exit door by Levy.

This equates to a startling average of £21,479,794 per sacked manager and an even more terrifying £530,914 per match, and an even more jaw-dropping £1,001,904 per victory won under each manager.

Since 2011, Spurs have dismissed Harry Redknapp, Andre Villas Boas, Mauricio Pochettino, Jose Mourinho, and Mauricio Pochettino.

Sensationally, their spending on relieved managers has even overtaken that of fierce rivals Chelsea and Manchester United.

The West Londoners’ ruthless hiring and firing strategy has seen nine different managers occupy the Stamford Bridge dug-out, including Spurs bosses of past and present respectively, Mourinho and Conte.

Despite the fact their manager turnover is significantly higher than Spurs, their total spending on managers’ compensation is nearly £20m less,

The reigning Champions League holders have spent £67,835,068, averaging out to £13,567,014 per manager.

However, their money paid per game and money paid per win is quite a bit higher than Spurs, as they have forked out on average £749,520 per match and £1,303,049 per victory.

Manchester United paid £54,563,562 on fired managers, averaging out to £18,187,854 per manager.

One thing all three clubs have in common is the fact they have all hired and sacked Mourinho for huge money.

And the Roma manager’s past occupations at the club likely explain why they are they have paid out more compensation to managers than anybody else in the division.

The research also discovered Mourinho has also made more money from compensation than the next three managers put together.

He has made a whopping £97,674,480 in compensation, more than Pochettino, Conte, and Redknapp combined. This means the Portuguese manager has made £266,870 per game and a whopping £467,342 per victory.

It truly is a specially outrageous sum of money for the Special One.
