Tottenham Hotspur on Monday reportedly sacked manager Jose Mourinho. An official announcement on the same is still awaited from the club on Mourinho’s removal, but if the reports are to be true, Mourinho’s sacking has come just six days before his side was set to face off against Manchester City in the EFL Cup final.
Under Mourinho’s leadership, Tottenham have struggled in the ongoing season, currently lying in 7th place in the Premier League table.
Spurs also crashed out of the Europa League, following a shocking 3-0 defeat in the 2nd leg against Dinamo Zagreb, despite having a two-goal advantage in the first leg.
Mourinho had signed with Tottenham in November 2019, replacing Mauricio Pochettino at the helm. He had signed a deal with the club until the 2023 season.
In his first season with the club, Spurs saw a rise from the 14th position to the sixth position in the Premier League table.
