Everton v Tottenham Hotspur- Premier League

Tottenham have sacked Jose Mourinho six days before the Carabao Cup final, in news broken by Sam Wallace and John Percy exclusively on Telegraph Sport. The 58-year-old Mourinho was dismissed after only 17 months in charge, even though he could have led the club to their first silverware since 2008.

Mourinho's coaching staff of Joao Sacramento, Nuno Santos, Carlos Lalin and Giovanni Cerra have also been sacked.

Mourinho was appointed Mauricio Pochettino's successor in November 2019 as the club finished sixth in his first season.

After battling their way to Europa League qualification via the league last season, Spurs fans were dreaming of a sustained title challenge in December when they were top of the league.

Tottenham confirmed in a statement that the Portuguese had left along with his coaching staff.

"On a personal level I have enjoyed working with him and regret that things have not worked out as we both had envisaged".

This season, Mourinho -who previously managed Manchester United, Chelsea, Real Madrid, Inter Milan and Porto - suffered 10 league defeats in a single campaign for the first time in his managerial career.

There have been rumours that Mourinho would not be at the club next season, but it seems that Spurs will not wait any longer and have chose to pull the trigger right away.

Tottenham have won five of their last 14 games in the Premier League, were knocked out of the FA Cup by Everton and surrendered a two-goal advantage against Dinamo Zagreb in the Europa League.

Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy took the decision over the club's disappointing second half of the Premier League 2020-21 season.
