His dismissal comes after 17 months of joining the Premier League giants replacing Mauricio Pochettino who now heads French side Paris Saint-Germain and is in the race to win the Champions League trophy.

The former Manchester United and Real Madrid coach has only won 44 matches from 86 matches in charge of Tottenham Hotspurs. He was leading the table back in November and he dropped points leaving the club in 7th position.

His departure comes at time when the club is days away from facing Manchester City in the League cup final and 48 hours away from facing Southampton. Over the weekend, they were beaten by Leicester to exit the FA Cup.

Back at his house, Mourinho dodged question saying that he wont answer to any questions when asked as to whether he will be going for a vacation as he recharges his batteries.

Speaking on Monday, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy thanked him for standing by the club even though the situation was tough due to the pandemic.

ose and his coaching staff have been with us through some of our most challenging times as a Club. Jose is a true professional who showed enormous resilience during the pandemic.

On a personal level I have enjoyed working with him and regret that things have not worked out as we both had envisaged. He will always be welcome here and we should like to thank him and his coaching staff for their contribution.” Said Levy.
