Jose Mourinho has been sacked as Tottenham Hotspur manager.

Ryan Mason and Chris Powell are set to take over at the helm of Spurs until June.

The Portuguese coach was appointed in November 2019 and went on to finish sixth in the Premier League.

Whilst tending his second season at Tottenham, Mourinho lost ten domestic league games in a single season for the first time in his career; Manchester United defeated Spurs 3-1 in North London, as Luke Shaw ensured his former boss remembered him.

However, it was not all doom and gloom for the 58-year-old coach as he became just the second ever Tottenham manager to win the maiden pair of North London Derbies.

Mourinho led Spurs to second place in the Premier League and just three points off the top spot thanks to Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min’s red-hot partnership.

As New Year Day approached, Spurs’ bid to match Manchester City stride for stride slowly dispersed and their form faltered.

Tottenham were disappointingly knocked out of the FA Cup quarterfinal by Everton in a nine-goal thriller. A defensive showing that was against everything `Mourinho built his tremendous success upon.

Like the incoming tide to a sandcastle, Spurs’ season continued to dwindle out of control. Mourinho’s side then lost 3-0 – 3-2 on aggregate – to Dinamo Zagreb after extra time in the UEFA Europa League Round of 16. The final nail in the coffin.

The North London side’s form spearheaded through by Mourinho was far from salvageable as Spurs went on to lose to Aston Villa, miserably draw to Newcastle, lose to Manchester United and draw to Everton.
