Tottenham Hotspur decided to part ways with Mauricio Pochettino back in November 2019 after a string of poor results throughout the year.
This came despite the fact that the Argentine had led the Lilywhites to their first-ever Champions League Final just months before he was handed his marching orders.
Within 24 hours, Pochettino had been replaced by Jose Mourinho, a serial winner who had been out of work since parting with Man United the previous year.
While Spurs did see an instant upturn in form, this quickly tailed away again as injuries to Harry Kane, Moussa Sissoko, and Heung-min Son took their toll.
The Standard reported at the time that Pochettino, Jesus Perez, Toni Jiminez, and Miguel D’Agostino were handed £20m in compensation between them.
However, France Football (relayed by Goal and GetFootballNewsFrance) have now claimed that Pochettino is set to receive another £4m from Spurs if he has not taken up a new job by next season, such was the structure of his exit agreement.
