Tottenham Hotspur have announced the dismissal of Jose Mourinho, its manager, after just 17 months in charge.
While the English side are yet to officially announce the decision, Sky Sports reported that Mourinho has left the club — less than a week to Sunday’s Carabao Cup final against Manchester City.
The Portuguese tactician was fired alongside his coaching staff, including Joao Sacramento, Nuno Santos, Carlos Lalin, and Giovanni Cerra.
Ryan Mason and Chris Powell are expected to take up a joint-interim role on a temporary basis with the search for a permanent replacement already underway.
Mourinho took over from Mauricio Pochettino as Tottenham manager in November 2019 and led the club to sixth in the English Premier League (EPL) during his first season in charge.
He has been under pressure at the club in the past few weeks after a disappointing series of results that culminated with the 2-2 draw against Everton at the weekend.
Spurs are currently seventh in the table and at the risk of missing out on a place in the top four and a Champions League spot.
