José Mourinho has been sacked as manager of Tottenham Hotspur. Mourinho’s position has come under increasing scrutiny following a run of form that has seen Spurs win just once in their past six games, a period in which the club was dumped out of the Europa League by Dinamo Zagreb in humiliating fashion, fell behind in the race for Champions League qualification – they currently sit seventh - and generally performed poorly. The 58-year-old had also somewhat reverted to type by criticizing his own players and picking fights with opposition managers.

It was expected, however, that the Portuguese would at least get the chance to lead the side into Sunday’s Carabao Cup final against Manchester City, but that will not be the case.

“The club can today announce that José Mourinho and his coaching staff João Sacramento, Nuno Santos, Carlos Lalin and Giovanni Cerra have been relieved of their duties,” read a statement released by Tottenham just before 11am on Monday morning. In the statement, chairman Daniel Levy, added: “José and his coaching staff have been with us through some of our most challenging times as a club. José 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.”

Assistant coach Ryan Mason will assume first-team duties for the time being. Mourinho’s sacking comes less than 24 hours after Tottenham announced they were part of the hugely controversial Super League and this could be seen as a case of the club attempting to bury bad news. And letting go of Mourinho is undeniably bad news for the club’s hierarchy given the huge expense of hiring him – the 58-year-old is believed to earning close to £12m a year – and the fact he arrived as a replacement for Mauricio Pochettino, who was incredibly popular with the fanbase having led Tottenham to consistently high finishes in the Premier League and to the Champions League final in 2019.

Mourinho has now been sacked by three different clubs in England – Chelsea, twice, Manchester United and Spurs.
