Jose Mourinho sacked as Tottenham manager: After a baron run of form and a massive slump in performance, Tottenham has parted ways with their manager.
After Spurs slump in performance since the international break, Daniel Levey has finally taken action. Sky Sports has reported Tottenham has parted ways with Jose Mourinho a week before their cup final with Man City.
Mourinho has been at the club since 2019 having taken over from current PSG boss Pochettino. He becomes the first managerial sacking of 2021 with a run of very poor performances making up Levy’s mind.
Recent results and performances simply haven’t been good enough for the ambition of Tottenham football club. Overall, the season has been disappointing having been knocked out of the Europa League and FA Cup.

Mourinho had also shut out a lot of players out like Danny Rose, Gareth Bale for a spell, Dele Alli and Matt Doherty. The writing was on the wall for the manager who hasn’t changed his approach since departing United and Chelsea.
According to recent reports assistant coaches, Ryan Mason and Chris Powell will take over for the remainder of the season.
