Dan Kilpatrick has reported that his source within Tottenham insists that there was no link between the Mourinho sacking this morning and the European Super League.
It was reported yesterday that Tottenham were one of the 12 joining members of the European Super League, a breakaway competition that featured the Premier League’s ‘big six’, as well as Barcelona, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Juventus, Inter Milan and AC Milan.
The announcement has created much controversy in the footballing world, with some pundits calling for the clubs to be punished.
While Mourinho had been under a lot of pressure owing to recent results, it came as a surprise when David Ornstein announced this morning that the Portuguese coach had been sacked less than a week before the Carabao Cup final.
Kilpatrick also reported that the players were not told about the sacking until the official announcement, although the writing was on the wall when training was delayed this morning.
#thfc Club source insisting ‘zero link’ between Super League announcement and timing of sacking. Understand caretaker – looks like Mason & Powell – to be in place for rest of the season.
