Jose Mourinho has been sacked as Tottenham Hotspur manager after being summoned for talks on Monday morning, less than a week before the Carabao Cup final.
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 were 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.
Mourinho was also sacked by Manchester United and Chelsea FC respectively before landing Hotspur’s job to replace erstwhile Manager, Mauricio Roberto Pochettino.
