London, Apr 19 (EFE).- Tottenham Hotspur have sacked Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho, the club confirmed Monday.
In a statement, Tottenham said: “The Club can today announce that Jose Mourinho and his coaching staff Joao Sacramento, Nuno Santos, Carlos Lalin and Giovanni Cerra have been relieved of their duties.”
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy added: “Jose and his coaching staff have been with us through some of our most challenging times as a Club.
“Jose is a true professional who showed enormous resilience during the pandemic. On a personal level I have enjoyed working with him and regret that things have not worked out as we both had envisaged.
“He will always be welcome here and we should like to thank him and his coaching staff for their contribution.”
The announcement comes just hours after the London club confirmed its participation in the proposed European Super League alongside five other Premier League teams including Manchester United and Liverpool as well as Spain’s Real Madrid.
Spurs are seventh in the Premier League and were knocked out of the Europa League last month.
The team is due to play Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday.
