News : Tottenham Hotspur: Spurs part ways with José Mourinho – Sport
The London club say goodbye to their famous coach just a few days before the League Cup final – only recently they failed in the Europa League.
Not so “special” anymore: The English soccer club Tottenham Hotspur reacted to the persistent sporting problems and the internal quarrels between team manager Jose Mourinho and the team and dismissed the head coach.
The Spurs announced this on Monday lunchtime. The pugnacious Portuguese (58) had signed a contract until 2023 in November 2019 as the successor to Mauricio Pochettino. A succession plan should be presented “promptly”. For the Premier League game on Wednesday (7 p.m. / Sky) against Southampton FC, Ryan Mason from the coaching staff should first prepare the team.
“Jose and his coaching staff were with us during one of the most challenging times for us as a club. Jose is a true professional and has shown himself unimpressed by the pandemic. I personally enjoyed working with him,” said club boss Daniel Levy: ” I’m sorry it didn’t work out the way we’d both hoped it would. “
As seventh in the Premier League, the Spurs have six games before the end of the season five points behind Champions League fourth place. In the Europa League it was against Dinamo Zagreb (2: 0/0: 3 nV) in the round of 16 as well as in the FA Cup against FC Everton (4: 5 nV). In the League Cup, Tottenham will play the final against Manchester City on Sunday (5.30 p.m. / DAZN).
