Chelsea expensive coach compensations never seem to end because, in March 2012, the club sacked Andre Villas-Boas less than eight months after taking over. This meant the Blues had to pay the Portuguese £12 Million.
Tottenham Hotspurs Chairman Daniel Levy thought his London rivals were crazy to sack and immediately hired him in July 2012. He stayed in charge until 16th December 2013 when they sacked him. They also paid him £4 million in compensation. This means Villas-Boas made £16 million in less than three years.
