Jose Mourinho has been relieved of his duties as head coach of Tottenham Hotspur. Spurs have decided to dispense with Mourinho after just over a season and a half in charge.
According to the Club statement, Jose Mourinho and his coaching staff Joao Sacramento, Nuno Santos, Carlos Lalin and Giovanni Cerra have been relieved of their duties.
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.”
Ryan Mason will take First Team training today and a further update will follow in due course.
Tottenham finished sixth in the Premier League last year and are now seventh, with almost no chance of Champions League qualification for next season. The club were also unhappy with Mourinho’s constant criticism of the players in public.
Mourinho has now been sacked by three clubs in England – Chelsea (twice), Manchester United and Spurs.
