Old Man Andrews Yeah seem to remember something like this. Wasn't it Villas-Boas?

That sounds correct. How long was it before he took the Zenit job?

The Zenit team photo when he was manager there is still the best team photo ever taken.


AVB went straight from Chelsea to Spurs.

Scolari? Hard to narrow it down due to the amount of shit managers they have had.

Nope, went from Chelsea to Uzbekistani champions FC Bunyodkor. His contract made Scolari the highest paid football manager in the world, earning €13 million a year.

Had to look that up, ftr.

It might be compensation related. Remember it is a football contract - normal rules don't necessarily apply.


Agreed. as discussed recently on another thread there are sacking and there are sackings. In Italy it is common that a manager is just asked to not to come to work anymore but will still keep getting paid until the end of their contract, unless they get another job, at which point they have essentially volunteered to cancel their contract. This avoids big compensation payouts. There have been clubs who effectively have 3 managers with 2 reported as being sacked over the previous year or 2 but in reality they are sitting at home still being paid for being the manager

So gardening leave?


kind of I guess, but isn't gardening/garden leave when you have handed in your notice and the employer doesn't want you hanging around during that period or there could be a conflict of interest with the new job? The Italian method is more a case of 'we have decided to go with someone else, don't bother coming in for the remainder of your 3 year contract and we will still pay you your monthly wage, but if you take up another job then you are breaking the terms of that contract so we will cancel it'

Bingo.

In November 2013, it was reported that Di Matteo was still being paid £130,000-a-week by Chelsea because the two parties had never agreed on a pay-off settlement and that he would continue to be paid in full until June 2014 unless he took another job before then.[53]

Former United target Erling Haaland scores his 5th goal in less than 1 hour of game time at Dortmund.

Why the hell did they not break the bank for the kid??? He is exactly what they needed. Such bad negotiating.
