Jose Mourinho will pocket a £ 2million bonus if he can takeTottenhaminto next season’s Champions League.
Portuguese boss Mourinho returned to the Premier League after an 11 month absence this week when he was handed the reins at Spurs following Mauricio Pochettino’s sacking at the north London club.
Mourinho was handed a four-year contract at Spurs, which is worth £ 15 ma-year.
But according tothe Sun,Mourinho has a clause in his deal which will pay out an addition £ 2m if Spurs qualify for the top four – something they have done in each of the last four seasons.
Under Pochettino, Spurs have won just three times this season and are 11 points adrift ofManchester City, who are currently fourth.
Meanwhile, Mourinho says Harry Kane needs to start winning trophies to go to the next level and wants to help him do it at Tottenham.
Mourinho has a history of working with – and getting the best out of – top strikers.
The 26 – year-old England international’s goal-scoring record is as good as it gets, but he has yet to win any silverware either for club or country.
And Mourinho says he will not be considered among the world’s best until he starts winning things.
“He’s one of the best strikers in the world,” he said. “He’s one of the best strikers in the world, no doubt, no doubt.
