These last 12 hours have just been unbelievable, first with the news of the European Super League breaking out, and now with Tottenham making another huge decision days before the Carabao Cup final. The football fanbase was already in disarray over the newly proposed league. Before they would digest it, the inevitable and unavoidable has happened. Jose Mourinho has been sacked by Tottenham.

The Lillywhites were all set to face Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final within a week’s time.

The official statement from Tottenham Hotspur read:

What caused the downfall of Jose Mourinho at Tottenham?

Although Tottenham Hotspur started their 2020/21 campaign on a bad note, Jose Mourinho quickly tightened the loose ends and started to deliver results. As a result of his disciplined and defensive football, the Spurs reached the top of the Premier League table in November.

However, the team failed to deliver the results consistently, and things slowly started to get worse. Moreover, the team’s recent failure against Dinamo Zagreb in Europa League, Manchester United and Everton in Premier League mounted pressure on the Portuguese manager, causing opinions on whether he deserves to be sacked or not.

According to reports, the sacking of Mourinho would cost Tottenham around £15million.

Ever since he took charge of Tottenham, Jose Mourinho has managed his side 86 times across all competitions. The manager registered 45 wins and accumulated 24 losses to his name in the process. Although he collected 1.77 points per game, the recent downfall cost him the position.

During the 2020/21 season, Mourinho accumulated more losses across all competitions than he has in any other season in his managerial career.

Daniel Levy has appointed Ryan Mason, a former midfielder of Lillywhites, as a manager of Tottenham Hotspur for the rest of the season. Chris Powell will work with him as well. It remains to be seen what this means for Tottenham’s aspirations for the upcoming season, especially with them not being in one of the European spots on the Premier League table. Tottenham are currently sitting in 7th place.
