Spurs part company with Mourinho

Tottenham Hotspur has confirmed that boss, Jose Mourinho and his coaching staff have left the club.

The former Porto, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Manchester United boss initially linked up with the North London outfit in November 2019 following the sacking of Mauricio Pochettino.

However, despite leading the Lilywhites to the Carabao Cup final, his tenure at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has largely been questioned by the clubs’ supporters.

Mourinho’s last game in charge was Friday’s frustrating 2-2 draw with Everton at Goodison Park – his coaching staff, Joao Sacramento, Nuno Santos, Carlos Lalin and Giovanni Cerra will also leave the club.

A statement posted by the club explained;

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.”
