Londoners have had a poor Premier League season and they have also been disappointed with European competition.
There have been rumors that Mourinho will not be at the club next season, but it looks like Spurs won’t wait any longer and they have decided to pull the trigger right away.
Besides the poor results, Mourinho has come under heavy criticism for his treatment of players like Dele Alli and Harry Winks this season. Both midfielders have barely played for Mourinho this season.
The decision to sack the manager comes days before Tottenham’s Carabao Cup final against Manchester City.
The Carabao Cup is Tottenham’s best chance to win a trophy this season and it will be interesting to see if they can end the season on a high.
According to TelegraphFirst-team coaches Ryan Mason and Chris Powell are in line to succeed Mourinho for the remainder of the campaign. It will be interesting to see who comes in as a permanent replacement at the end of the season.
Figures like Julian Nagelsmann have been linked to the club in recent months.
Meanwhile, Tottenham confirmed their participation in the European Super League last night and are among six Premier League clubs that have signed up for the breakaway tournament.
Some Tottenham fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on Mourinho’s departure and here’s what they had to say.
