Tottenham Hotspur have sacked Jose Mourinho after just over a season and a half in charge. Tottenham are in seventh in the Premier League and face the risk of missing out on a place in the top four.
Spurs have confirmed Ryan Mason would take charge of first-team training today. Spurs have a Carabao Cup final on Sunday against Manchester City but their chances of qualifying for Europe remains unlikely. The feeling within Spurs is that they are worse than they they were under Pochettino in terms of position and football quality.
A club statement said: “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.”
Spurs 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.”
