Tottenham have sacked Jose Mourinho after a dire performance in the Premier League this season, with Daniel Levy blaming the club’s decline in performances for the decision. Spurs have appointed Ryan Mason and Chris Powell as his replacement.

Tottenham have decided to call time on Mourinho’s tenure at the club.

In an announcement on Monday morning, the club confirmed that the former Manchester United and Chelsea manager had been let go.

Mourinho’s entire coaching staff has also been let go by Spurs.

Spurs are currently seventh in the Premier League table, and are five points behind the top four places.

But regardless of results, Tottenham’s poor performances have apparently paid a part in Levy’s decision.

Mourinho had lost more games with Tottenham in less games than he did at Porto, Inter Milan, Real Madrid or his first stint at Chelsea.

Tottenham suffered defeat 23 times in Mourinho’s 83 games at the club.

In the club’s statement, Levy said: “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.”

Tottenham have appointed Mason and Powell as joint managers until the end of the season, with the former taking training on Monday.

It has been reported that Spurs will go after RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann, with the young head coach in demand.

Bayern Munich are also likely to look at the 33-year-old, while Massimiliano Allegri continues to be linked.

The news comes just hours after Tottenham announced their desire to join a new European Super League, effectively breaking away from the Premier League.

However, the club has apparently denied any links between the announcement and Mourinho’s departure.
