Jose Mourinho has been fired by Tottenham Hotspur. Today, due to disputes over the proposed European Super League, Tottenham sacked Mourinho as their head coach.
Spurs are seventh in the Premier League, and Mourinho’s leadership has faced acute criticism all season. After all, Tottenham suffered Europa League elimination by Dinamo Zagreb in humiliating fashion, and couldn’t secure a Champions League qualification.
“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.
In the statement, chairman Daniel Levy, added: “José and his coaching staff have been with us through some of our most challenging times as a club. José 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.”
Apparently, the head coach had furious words with Spurs management over Super League today, and Tottenham sacked Mourinho immediately.
Mourinho’s players seemed to like him, however.
Assistant coach Ryan Mason will fill in as the interim coach. He will assume first-team duties for the time being.
