Manchester United paid Jose Mourinho and his staff a whooping sum of £19.6m Compensation after their sack.

Manchester United paid Jose Mourinho and his staff £19.6m as a compensation following his sack in December last year after a long poor run of results, culminating in a 3-1 defeat by Liverpool, that left them 11 points off fourth place in the Premier League.

This revelation was made by the Club as they released the figures in their second quarter financial results. Within the financial results, which were released to the New York Stock Exchange, it said: "Exceptional items for the quarter were £19.6m, relating to compensation to the former manager and certain members of the coaching staff for loss of office."

55 year old Jose Mourinho took over in May 2016 and led United to League Cup and Europa League titles. In January 2018 he signed a contract extension until 2020 with the option of an extra year.
