Tottenham sacks Jose Mourinho

Tottenham has sacked Jose Mourinho with the club on course to miss out on Champions League football next season - although he is still set to walk away with up to £20million in compensation.
Mourinho, 58, replaced Mauricio Pochettino in November 2019 but has now been dismissed after a dismal Premier League campaign and failure in the Europa League. The bombshell axing comes less than a week before Tottenham are set to take on Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley. 
A statement read: 'The Club can today announce that 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.' 
Mourinho has parted ways just hours after it was confirmed that Tottenham will join the controversial European Super League.
