Tottenham Hotspur decided to part company with Mauricio Pochettino on Tuesday evening after five and a half years at the club.
Under Pochettino Spurs finished in the top four of the Premier League for four seasons in a row whilst also guiding the club to their first appearance in the Champions League final.
After a tough start to the season where they were humiliated in cup competitions by Bayern Munich and Colchester United whilst also only managing to win three of their opening twelve top flight fixtures under the Argentine, he was dismissed.
Levy said in a statement on the club’s official site that he was extremely reluctant to make the change.
Less than twenty-four hours later, the chairman had moved to bring in former Real Madrid and Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho to take over.
The Daily Star claim that Levy’s decision to relieve him of duties has left Pochettino devastated.
It is claimed that Pochettino considered himself to have a close relationship with the Spurs supremo and did not expect to be sacked in the middle of the season.
The decision to sack Pochettino took most Spurs fans by surprise and they will never forget the way he transformed the side.
Levy is known for his ruthlessness and runs the club as a business, hopefully, Mourinho can take us to the next level and Pochettino is back in football soon.
