Football fans often admire or other transfer of the player, the amount of which in recent years has literally skyrocketed and obviously would have continued to grow rapidly, if not coronaries. At the same time, those who are equally doing the modern football often corny forget about the coaches, of course. A good coach is sometimes mean even more than half of the team. And for such “merchandise” to the owners of the clubs have to pay.

More often in the new club specialist moves having to settle all the details of the employment of cooperation with the last employer, or even in the status of unemployed. However, there are many cases and foreclosure of the contract mentor – clausula it is not only in the agreements the players happen. In fact, today, offer to do a small overview of the five most expensive deals in world football to redeem the contract of the head coach…

Brendan RODGERS (from Swansea to Liverpool) – 6.2 million euros

8 years ago when Brendan Rodgers was still very young and incredibly promising coach, bet on it did guide Liverpool. For the right to sign an employment agreement with severoirlandtsev “red” had to activate clausula coach contract with Swansea, which was 6.2 million euros.

To understand the “Liverpool” was possible. In the summer of 2010, Rodgers led Swansea and in his first season via the playoffs, managed to lead the team in the Premier League, where “the swans” became the first club from Wales in the competition’s history. Contrary to expectations of skeptics, the team of Rodgers not dived in the championship immediately, and finished on quite a high 11th place, behind Liverpool, which was the 8th, only 5 points.

After Roy Hodgson and Kenny Dalglish, who failed to bring Liverpool to a serious level, the rate for an ambitious young revolutionary, who thought Rogers was very justified, and therefore to pay the “red” had a lot of. At Anfield Brendan managed to stay a little more than three years. This period was very controversial, although remember fans, Liverpool also have something – for example, quality the 2013/14 season in the Premier League when the Reds finished second, only two points won the League title Manchester city…

Jose MOURINHO (from inter to real Madrid) – 8 million euros

In may 2010 inter Milan under the guidance of Jose Mourinho unexpectedly for many has won the Champions League, adding to that two more important trophies – the championship and the Cup of Italy. At that time the Portuguese were really the most “Special” as it was called in the press, and that now, with the latest “achievements” josé, young fans can sound even more ridiculous…

The success in Italy and on the continent has convinced the leadership of the “real” part with the 8 million euros that have been transferred to the account of “inter” as the activation clausula mentor. Mourinho was faced with one of the most difficult challenges in his coaching career, because with “real” he had to push aside the throne of the great “Barcelona” almost equal is not known in Spain nor on the game nor the ability to stamp extracted points.

A three-year cooperation is “Special” with real Madrid brought one the title of champion of Spain, which they produced at the end of the season-2011/12, setting a record for La Liga in scoring in one season (100, and later the same bar won and Barcelona, but a year later). The Cup and the Supercup of Spain were not the trophies, for which real name was Jose Mourinho, and it is possible to remember for the sake of completeness, but no more. Subsequently the Portuguese because of its difficult nature has made a lot of enemies in the team among the players, and in the summer of 2013 left Spain, accepting the offer of a return to Chelsea…

Ruben AMORIM (from Braga to sporting Lisbon) – 10 million euros

Perhaps there are many fans who are now surprised, asked something like, “Who?” In fact, we were not wrong – Ruben Amorim, which is March 5 this year, he headed the Lisbon “sporting” fully deserves a place in our list. For the right to sign it, “green-whites” had to pay “Braga” clausula in the amount of 10 million euros – some almost unbelievable amount, especially if we are talking about the coaching transition in Portuguese Primary.

But the 35-year-old Amorim vs Braga was fantastic. Leading this team in December last year, the coach spent with “gunsmiths” 13 matches, 9 of which occurred in the domestic championship. So, of the 9 matches Braga Amorim in Primare team got victory in eight, and one finished in a draw. Moreover, the “gunsmiths” in the first match when Amorim smashed to smithereens “Belenenses” (7:1), and then successively defeated the giants of Portuguese football FC Porto (2:1), sporting (1:0) and Benfica (1:0)!

To sporting Lisbon’s Ruben Amorim, came when the team took fourth place in the table, having to pause the season to spend only one match. However, the League still was resumed, and after the restart the green-whites played at Amorim already 8 matches. Total under 35-year coach sporting have already played 9 official games, winning them 6 wins, 2 draws and only 1 defeat against Porto in the championship for the dragons match.

Brendan RODGERS (from “Celtic” to “Lester”) – 10.5 million euros

Severoirlandtsev Brendan Rodgers is the only coach who twice managed to get in the top 5 most expensive transitions among mentors. The second and most recent in his career transition, for which new club Rogers was forced to fork out a considerable amount took place in February 2019, when “Lester” paid “Celtic” for early termination of the contract specialist about 10.5 million euros.

After Rogers failed to implement the desired at Liverpool, the coach headed Scottish leader “Celtic”, which without much hassle has won 3 national championship, 2 Scottish Cup and 3 Cup Scottish League. That was enough to guide Lis, tired from the experiments of Claude Pula, called Rogers back to the Premier League.

“Lester” Rogers headed, when the team was 12th in the standings, and at the finish of the season raised a “Fox” on the 9-th line. However, much more important, as Leicester started the new season, which is the first full-length for Brendan in his post. After the 4th round, “Fox” climbed to third place in the table, and later a long time at all was the second, but still missed forward “Manchester city”. After the restart of the season Leicester stalled somewhat, but still maintains position in the standings, allowing to start next season in the Champions League.

Andre VILLAS-BOAS (from Porto to Chelsea) – 15 million euros

The Portuguese Andre Villas-Boas not only leads the ranking, but ironically is also the most unfortunate example of how clubs pay considerable money for the new coach, who is unable to justify hopes.

In 2011, Villas-Boas, who at that time was only 33 years, has led Porto to victory in the Europa League. Many experts were quick to call Andre a “new Jose Mourinho” why the interest in his person is on the market just rolls over. The leadership of the “dragons” had the foresight to sign with a coach a new contract, increasing clausula to 15 million euros, but that has not stopped Chelsea and its rich owner Roman Abramovich.

However, quite quickly Villas-Boas realized that it is one thing to indulge in the Portuguese League and another to match the level of the English Premier League. With Chelsea, the Portuguese worked for one season, being fired in March when the team slipped to fifth place in the table.

After Chelsea Boas tried to gain a foothold in the Premier League, leading Tottenham, but without much success. Then the Portuguese finally made a choice in favor of money, ecosulis on the offer “Zenith” and “Shanghai SIPG”. Last summer left China, moved to France and headed the “Marseille”. With the “new team” finished second in the League, which decided not to finish because of the pandemic coronavirus – this is probably the maximum that could be for Marseille in Ligue 1, given the status and capabilities of the permanent champion of last years “Paris St Germain”.
