ABRAMOVICH: Smart move with AVB saves £11m quid!.

As we all know, Andre Villas-Boas is set to take over at Spurs next week which is somewhat of a surprise. It's surprising because I will never understand why Harry Redknapp has been sacked with his record at Spurs and also because AVB is taking over a club so quickly after being sacked by Chelsea AND being another club in the Premier League.

However, this morning as reported here in The Sun, it seems that Roman Abramovich made a great decision when he negotiated with AVB his severance deal.

We have heard in the past how people have had inserted into their contracts, clauses that would entitle them to a lump sum or payment of the remaining part of their contract when they have been fired. Carlo Ancelotti for example, sacking him cost Roman a small fortune.

It seems that with AVB, Roman took a different course of action and it's the total opposite to the "norm" we have always heard of.

When AVB left, he remained on the Chelsea payroll until he took over another club. With wages being reported of £100,000 per week while he was here, this sum was still being paid.

So as a result, now AVB is due to be named as Spurs manager, he will miss out on the remaining part of his contract which the article believes is to be around £10.8m and has been paid only three months salary by Chelsea  = around £1.2m.

What a smart move by Roman and the Board of Directors!.
