Tottenham Hotspur’s manager Jose Mourinho has been sacked after 17 months at White Hart Lane.
The dismissal comes only days before Spurs play in the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City on Sunday.
It also came hours after the “Big Six” North London club announced it was joining a new European Super League.
Daniel Levy, Tottenham chairman, 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.”
This season for the first time in an illustrious career, the 58-year-old Portuguese manager led his side to ten defeats in a single campaign.
And no Premier League side have dropped more points from winning positions than Spurs – 20 in all.
Former Spurs midfielder Ryan Mason has taken over training.
