JOSE Mourinho has been sacked by Tottenham Hotspur after 17 months at the club.

The Portuguese manager, who has led Spurs to the Carabao Cup final, which takes place on Sunday, leaves the club sitting seventh in the Premier League with six games left of the domestic season still to play.

Former Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan, Real Madrid and Manchester United manager Mourinho had been in charge of 86 games at the club, having replaced Mauricio Pochettino in November 2019. Having taken charge with the club in 14th place in the Premier League, they finished in sixth spot.

A draw on Friday against Everton left Tottenham, Champions League finalists in 2019, unlikely to reach the top four.

Chairman Daniel Levy said: “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.”

Tottenham play Southampton on Wednesday with the club five points off the Champions League places.

Mourinho’s coaching staff – Joao Sacramento, Nuno Santos, Carlos Lalin and Giovanni Cerra – have also all been relieved of their duties.(Eurosport)
