Mauricio Pochettino has been sacked by Tottenham - Surprised?
« on: November 19, 2019, 10:14:15 PM »
Mauricio Pochettino has been sacked by Tottenham after a dreadful run of results. The Argentinian manager, who enjoyed such progress since moving to north London in 2014, culminating in reaching last season’s Champions League final, has watched his fortunes slump after a difficult summer.

Pochettino’s team have taken 14 points from 12 matches this season and, in a larger sample size back to February, 25 from 24 games – in other words, relegation form. Pochettino departs along with his assistants Jesús Pérez, Miguel D’Agostino and Toni Jiménez.

Daniel Levy, the chairman, said: “We were extremely reluctant to make this change and it is not a decision the board has taken lightly, nor in haste. Regrettably domestic results at the end of last season and beginning of this season have been extremely disappointing.

“We have a talented squad. We need to re-energise and look to deliver a positive season for our supporters.”

Jose Mourinho has been appointed Tottenham manager after the sacking of Mauricio Pochettino on Tuesday.

Former Chelsea and Manchester United boss Mourinho has signed a contract until the end of the 2022-23 season.

"The quality in both the squad and the academy excites me," said the 56-year-old Portuguese. "Working with these players is what has attracted me."

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy said: "In Jose we have one of the most successful managers in football."

Mourinho will hold his first news conference as Tottenham boss at 14:00 GMT on Thursday.

The Portuguese's basic salary is £8m a year, significantly less than his pay at United, which was around £12m.
