José Mourinho stopped being the coach of Tottenham of England. The club announced early on Monday that it relieved the Portuguese coach and his entire coaching staff from their duties, after the coach was questioned in recent weeks about the poor results of the team, which today is far from being one of the animators of the Premier League, and for the alleged tensions with some players in the locker room.

"The club announces that José Mourinho and his coaching staff made up of Joao Sacramento, Nuno Santos, Carlos Lalin and Giovanni Cerra have been relieved of their duties," the London entity reported in a brief statement published on its social networks. Meanwhile, Daniel Levy, owner of Tottenham, said: “José and his coaching staff have been with us through some of the most challenging times we have gone through as a club. José is a true professional and has shown great resilience during the pandemic".

“On a personal level, I have enjoyed working with him and I'm sorry that things didn't turn out the way we both hoped. He will always be welcome here and we want to thank him and his work team for his contribution”, concluded the manager in the statement informing that Ryan Mason, coach of the U-19, will be in charge of directing the training this Monday.

It is expected that in the next few hours there will be an official announcement on who will be the replacement of the Portuguese, who had taken over at Tottenham in November 2019 in place of the Argentine Mauricio Pochettino. In the English press there are already some names around and the strongest is that of a compatriot of Mou: Nuno Espirito Santo, current coach of Wolverhampton.

The reason for the dismissal of José Mourinho from Tottenham

Although the leadership of the London club affirms that it was a sporting decision and due to tension in the dressing room with several players, reality indicates that the Portuguese is against the creation of the European Super League. For this reason, he didn't go out with the players to direct the training session on Monday in protest, which prompted the authorities to fire him.
