• Manager compensated following his sacking in December
• Portuguese’s next move will be to host show on Russian TV
Manchester United made a payoff of almost £20m to José Mourinho and his staff, the club’s half-yearly accounts have revealed.
The manager was sacked in December after 17 league games in his third season, with a contract due to expire at the end of the 2019-20 campaign. Figures released on Thursday list a sum of £19.6m as “an exceptional item relating to compensation to the former manager and certain members of the coaching staff for loss of office”. The goalkeeping coach Silvino Louro, the scout Ricardo Formosinho, the analyst Giovanni Cerra and the fitness coaches Stefano Rapetti and Carlos Lalín are expected to have received payment, though it is likely most of the money went to Mourinho, who was earning £15m a year at Old Trafford.
