Tottenham Hotspur are back in action at the weekend as they take on West Ham United away in the Premier League, but they will arrive without ex-manager Pochettino.
Spurs announced this evening that they had parted ways with the Argentine after over five years and a Champions League Final with the club.
Daniel Levy claimed that the decision was made reluctantly, but the huge drop in form across 2019 forced the decision.
This all comes after the manager failed to win a single trophy in over half a decade at the club, despite making two finals, including that Champions League Final last season.
Spurs are now 14th in the Premier League with just three wins and 14 points to their name, closer to relegation than the Champions League places.
The Sun previously reported that Spurs would have to pay Pochettino £12.5m if they fired him, compensation to cover the rest of the Argentine’s contract.
