Tottenham have sacked Jose Mourinho as manager after a dismal run of form.

The Portuguese, who was in charge from November 2019, leaves the club in seventh place in the Premier League.

The Independent understands that the decision to fire Mourinho was made on Friday evening, following the 2-2 draw with Everton in the top flight, which proved to be the 58-year-old’s final fixture with Spurs.

It is also understood that the former Chelsea, Manchester United and Real Madrid coach will receive £16million in severance pay.

A statement released by Tottenham on Monday read: “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.

“Ryan Mason will take First Team training today and a further update will follow in due course.”

Spurs 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.”
