Jose Mourinho has been sacked as head coach of Tottenham Hotspur, according to The Athletic’s David Ornstein.

If the report is true, the Portuguese departs the North Londoners following Friday’s 2-2 draw against Everton which have all but ended their hopes of finishing in the top four in the Premier League.

Spurs face Southampton in the top flight on Wednesday evening followed by Sunday’s Carabao Cup final against Manchester City.

Mourinho leaves Tottenham with the club in seventh place in the table and having suffered a humiliating exit in the Europa League at the hands of Dinamo Zagreb.

The former Manchester United boss was appointed by Daniel Levy to take over from Mauricio Pochettino in November 2019, where he was under contract until end of the season.

While the news does not come as a surprise given our recent struggles, the timing of the announcement is surprising since we have less than a week left until the League Cup final. Perhaps Levy and the club hierarchy were busy regarding the plans for the Europa Super League over the past few weeks and decided to make the announcement once Tottenham’s seat on the table was confirmed.
