Jose Mourinho has been sacked by Spurs, just six days before the Carabao Cup final

Jose Mourinho has been sacked as Tottenham Hotspur manager after being summoned for talks on Monday morning, less than a week before the Carabao Cup final.

Mourinho’s stormy tenure finally comes to an end as chairman Daniel Levy takes drastic action over the club’s disappointing second half to the Premier League season.

It is understood that Levy made the decision this week, six days before the League Cup final, because it would give him more time to appoint a replacement for next season. Also, the Spurs chairman hopes to allow for a bounce under the caretaker-management team that might carry the club into the top six.

First-team coaches Ryan Mason and Chris Powell will take charge for the remainder of the campaign, and their first game will be a chance to end Spurs’ 13 year wait for a domestic trophy.

There were rumours this morning that the news is a direct result of Spurs joining the new found Super League with 11 other top European clubs, but that announcement is not credited as a factor.

Mourinho has long been a critic of any Super League proposals, but it’s believed that Tottenham’s poor league form was the main factor in his dismissal.

Spurs are currently seventh, five points off the top four and in danger of missing out on the Champions League for a second consecutive year.
