The finance firm’s annual Football Money League shows that the top 20 revenue-generating clubs lost around 1.1bn euros (£975million) during 2019-20.
The late goals were a blessing for Mourinho, whose side are back in Premier League action on Thursday when champions Liverpool visit north London.
Jose Mourinho says Frank Lampard’s sacking is an example of the “brutality of football” as the Tottenham boss reflected on Chelsea’s decision to cast aside yet another manager. Lampard received his marching orders on Monday despite a 3-1 FA Cup win over Luton at the weekend, with that victory not enough to save him following a torrid run of form over the destive period. Club owner Roman Abramovic insisted the former midfielder's status at the club was undiminished by the decision, which came after a run of five defeats in eight Premier League games.
