Jose Mourinho has left his position as head coach of Tottenham after being sacked by the club.
Mourinho had been in charge at Spurs since November 2019, replacing Mauricio Pochettino, signing a deal until the end of the 2023 season.
However, Spurs were unable to push themselves back into the top-four picture and sit 7th with six games of the current league campaign remaining.
The news comes less than a week before Tottenham face Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final. It’s their only chance of domestic silverware after being knocked out of the FA Cup by Everton.
Their Europa League campaign also ended in defeat at the 16th stage. Holding a 2-0 first leg lead over Dinamo Zagreb, Spurs were stunned by a second leg comeback in Croatia as they crashed out by a 3-2 aggregate scoreline.
Reports claim that first-team coaches Ryan Mason and Chris Powell are set to take charge for the remainder of the season.
A statement 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.
Chairman Daniel Levy added: “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.”
