Jose Mourinho sacked by Tottenham


ottenham have sacked manager Jose Mourinho just six days before the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City.

Mourinho was brought in to take the club to the next level and win trophies following Mauricio Pochettino’s sacking in late 2019, but Spurs currently sit seventh in the Premier League and are out of every cup competition bar the Carabao Cup.

Following the 2-2 draw at Everton on Friday night, chairman Daniel Levy informed the former Manchester United manager of his decision on Monday morning – the morning after the stunning news that Spurs are one of the 12 founding members of a new European Super League.

Tottenham have won just one of their last five in the Premier League and in that time were knocked out of the Europa League by Dinamo Zagreb.

The Portuguese has divided the dressing room in recent weeks, regularly taking aim at his players after disappointing results.

Ryan Mason and Chris Powell will take temporary charge of the side, with Tottenham facing Southampton on Wednesday before the Wembley final against Pep Guardiola’s side on Sunday.

Mourinho signed a deal until 2023 when he replaced Pochettino and took Spurs from 14th in the Premier League to sixth in his first season.

Tottenham were top of the table earlier this season but form took a nosedive and he leaves with the north Londoners five points behind West Ham in the final Champions League place.

The 58-year-old’s sacking means Tottenham become the first club that Mourinho has not won any silverware with.
