After just 17 months in charge of Tottenham Hotspur, manager Jose Mourinho has been sacked by the club.
The decision came following Spurs’ 2-2 draw with Everton on Friday, with a club statement from Daniel Levy and indeed the Portuguese’s departure following on Monday morning.
It read: “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.”
In all, Mourinho oversaw 86 games in his time in North London after replacing former boss Mauricio Pochettino, winning 45 of those.
However, with Spurs having won just once in their last four Premier League games and languishing seventh in the current standings, the club have elected to make a change.
As it stands, current RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann is the favourite to take the reins at the club. He can be backed at a price of 3/1 with William Hill to be appointed as the next permanent Tottenham Hotspur manager.
