Tottenham Hotspur has sacked manager Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho has been sacked as Tottenham manager  after just one year and five months  in charge.

The sacking comes on the backdrop of some poor results . They are currently seventh, having picked up two points from their past three league games, and were knocked out of the Europa League in March.

Spurs lost to Manchester United and have drawn with Everton and Newcastle in the last three.

Spurs face Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final on on Sunday and former Spurs midfielder Ryan Mason will hold the job before and new manager is appointed.

The Portuguese replaced Mauricio Pochettino as Spurs manager in November 2019 and guided the club to sixth in the Premier League last season.

Jose will however still walk away with up to £20million in compensation.

A statement read: ‘The Club can today announce that Jose Mourinho and his coaching staff Joao Sacramento, Nuno Santos, Carlos Lalin and Giovanni Cerra have been relieved of their duties.’

Chairman Daniel Levy said: ‘Jose and his coaching staff have been with us through some of our most challenging times as a Club. 

‘Jose is a true professional who showed enormous resilience during the pandemic.

On a personal level I have enjoyed working with him and regret that things have not worked out as we both had envisaged. 

‘He will always be welcome here and we should like to thank him and his coaching staff for their contribution.’

Mourinho has parted ways just hours after it was confirmed that Tottenham will join the controversial European Super League.
