UPDATE: Mourinho Sacked As Tottenham Manager

Jose Mourinho has been sacked as manager of Tottenham Hotspur.

The announcement comes just hours after Spurs announced it was part of controversial plans to join a European Super League.

Mourinho, 58, had been in charge of Spurs since November 2019 after taking over from Mauricio Pochettino.

The Portuguese manager’s original deal with the north London club had been due to run until the end of the 2023 season.

In a statement, Spurs 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.

“Ryan Mason will take first team training today and a further update will follow in due course.”

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy said on the club’s official website: “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’s departure comes with Spurs in seventh position in the table and five points away from the places needed for Champions League qualification. In their last match on Friday, Spurs drew 2-2 with Everton.

It also comes just days before Spurs meet Manchester City in the final of the League Cup at Wembley.

    Oloje Moriranwo gets the heave ho.
    I’m actually surprised it took this long. Management was really patient with him, but water pass garri so much, they just couldn’t take it anymore.
    One of the most successful and most colorful managers the game has ever seen.
    One thing with Jose is if he likes you, you become like a son (Drogba), if he dislikes you, you become pariah (Pogba). He needs to find a balance. The player you dislike today can save you tomorrow. Man management is key. Perhaps he should call Gernot Rohr for some tips.
    The other issue is poor tactics. Tottenham under Jose have not taken enough advantage of weapons like Son, Kane, Lucas, Lamela, Dele, Ndombele, and others. Jose’s ultra conservative inclination has not helped. A MANAGER SHOULD ADJUST HIS TACTICS TO SUIT THE PLAYERS HE HAS, NOT HIS OWN PHILOSOPHY.
    On a brighter note for THE EMBATTLED ONE, his sacking means he will be getting a bumper payout, per his contract. Now he can go home and relax a bit with his family. But Jose won’t be unemployed for too long.
    Fun fact – according to the Daily Sun, Jose has made quite a living from being sacked. See details below:
    Chelsea in 2007 – 18M Pounds
    Real Madrid in 2013 – 17M pounds
    Chelsea in 2015 – 12.5M pounds
    Man United in 2018 – 15M pounds
    Tottenham in 2021 – 15M pounds
    Grand total – 77.5M pounds!
