Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho sacked after seventeen months
After seventeen months in charge at Tottenham Hotspur, Jose Mourinho was finally given the boot.
Mourinho, with a history of winning major trophies till not very long ago, saw Tottenham finishing on the sixth last season compared to a regular Top Four slot they achieved under Pochettino.
Mourinho’s deep, low-possession style that brought him success in the past against stronger opposition was his undoing this time around as he kept losing regularly to Top eight Premier League sides.
Although, it must be said that Harry Kane and Son Heung-min hit their best form under his watch and someone like the much-ignored Tanguy Ndombele was transformed into a great midfield asset.
In fact, Spurs have succumbed to as many as 13 defeats across all competitions in 2020-21 which is by far the highest number of losses Mourinho has suffered in a single season during his long managerial career.
To quote Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy
He further added
The club's twenty nine-year-old head of player development, Ryan Mason, will take charge of the London side for the remainder of the season as Spurs get ready for a Premier league fixture against Southampton on Wednesday and then proceed to Wembley where they play Pep Guardiola's Man City in the EFL Carabao final on Sunday.
