BREAKING: Tottenham sack Mourinho

0

Tottenham Hotspur have sensationally sacked manager Jose Mourinho.

The announcement comes after they drew 2-2 with Everton on Friday evening, leaving them down in seventh place in the table.

Former Tottenham midfielder Ryan Mason and the ex-Charlton and Huddersfield boss Chris Powell have been placed in temporary charge.

Mourinho was appointed as Tottenham manager in November 2019, a day after the sacking of Mauricio Pochettino.

He guided them to sixth place in the table by the end of the campaign, but his style of football often didn’t win him much acclaim from fans.

Tottenham have struggled at time in the Premier League this season, and embarrassingly exited the Europa League at the last-16 stage after a 3-2 aggregate defeat to Dinamo Zagreb.

However they will take on Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final next weekend as they search for their first trophy in 13 years.

The news comes after Spurs became one of the six Premier League clubs to sign up to play in a new European Super League, with the plans condemned by supporters.

A statement on the plans from the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters Trust read: “Yesterday, the current Board of THFC betrayed the Club, its history and the magic that makes this game so special when they put their name to a statement announcing the formation of a breakaway European Super League.

“This statement, signed by self-appointed “leading clubs”, was put out late on a Sunday night. It was made not only after no consultation with supporters, but in the face of clearly stated opposition to key parts of the announcement.

“We have always tried to maintain a pragmatic position of engagement with the Board of THFC, even under the most trying of circumstances. But enough is enough.

“The current Board is prepared to risk the Club’s reputation and its future in the opportunistic pursuit of greed. One of England’s most famous clubs could find itself expelled from English league competition. Its players could be banned from international competition.

“And yet the current owners – mere custodians of a 139-year-old institution – are prepared to risk it all for avarice and self-aggrandisement.

“We demand the Board immediately disassociates itself from the breakaway league.

“Only then can meaningful discussions about change take place. If the Board does not do this, we will have no choice but to call on new owners prepared to safeguard the past, present and future of our great Club to step forward and work with us.”
