Jose Mourinho has been fired as manager of Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs sit seventh in the Premier League and were eliminated from the Europa League by Dinamo Zagreb.

“The club can today announce that José Mourinho and his coaching staff João Sacramento, Nuno Santos, Carlos Lalin and Giovanni Cerra have been relieved of their duties,” read a statement released by Tottenham just before 11am on Monday.

Mourinho recently reverted to type by criticizing his own players and picking fights with opposing managers. Mourinho was at least expected to remain manager through the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City on Sunday.

In the statement the chairman, Daniel Levy, added: “José and his coaching staff have been with us through some of our most challenging times as a club. José 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.”
