AVB Gets R270m From Chelsea and Spurs

When Andre Villas-Boas received his marching orders from Daniel Levy on Monday, he was probably at the bottom of his young managerial career, but a look at his bank statement could raise his mood again.

The 36-year-old Portuguese manager has collected a staggering £16m in compensation from his sackings in the Premier League in the past two years.

Roman Abromovich paid AVB £12m to leave Stamford Bridge and Daniel Levy added another £4,5m from White Hart Lane. Whilst his managerial reputation has suffered from his second sacking in just two years, Villas-Boas finances couldn’t have had better times.

The £16m equal about R270.000.000, which means the former Tottenham and Chelsea manager could buy himself more than 77.000.000 Soccer-Laduma issues from his compensation.

But AVB is not the only manager whose bank account has been flourishing after his managerial career suffered. Champions League winner Roberto Di-Matteo is still picking up a weekly £130.000 wage check until his original contract ends in June 2014.

That might be the reason why the Italian is still without a club, because the Chelsea payment would stop when RDM signs with another club.

In all, Chelsea have paid out £50m in total to their axed managers since 2003.

Do sacked managers deserve such a high compensation fees? Have your say in the comment section below.
