In total, José Mourinho has already received 55 million euros in buyouts from the various football clubs so that he does not coach the respective team. With these severance payments and his salaries, the coach was able to build up millions of assets. His arch-rival Pep Guardiola “only” manages 80 million euros.

The Career of Jose Mourinho

In a way, José Mourinho’s career was probably shaped by the fact that his father was already a professional footballer and later also became a coach. At a young age, Mourinho joined the youth team Belenenses Lisbon and was active there as a player.

But before he ultimately became a professional footballer, Mourinho completed a degree in sports science. He then trained in the youth team of Vitória Setúbal and in 1990 became assistant coach of CF Estrela Amadora.

In 1993 he met a world-renowned top coach for the first time. For Sporting Lisbon, Sir Bobby Robson needed a translator who spoke both English and Portuguese. Mourinho fulfilled this task and both developed a friendship.
