Mourinho who was brought in to replace Mauricio Pochettino in November 2019, helped Tottenham finish 6th in his first campaign. After which he demanded activity in a pandemic ridden transfer market, and Daniel Levy obliged as Tottenham had a busy window before the 2020/21 season began.

Tottenham currently sit 7th in the table, but the way they have been dropping points must have had Daniel Levy flummoxed. Although no official announcement has been made by the club, it is confirmed that Tottenham have sacked Mourinho and are looking for replacements.
Mourinho and his readiness towards throwing his players under the bus for underperforming in his defensive and outdated system, is also seen as one of the main reasons that he got sacked. Mourinho has been sacked a week before Carabo Cup final against Manchester City, and it seems he would not be able to keep up in his record of always winning a trophy in his second anymore.

Tottenham will surely scramble around to look for replacement as they would not want to go into the Cup final without a manager.
It has also become apparent that Jose Mourinho is in the twilight of his managerial career as his team’s performances and his man-managing skills have become completely outdated, and according to us he should not be handed another job in a top five league.
Jose Mourinho is fired. He is the first of the European Super League managers to lose their job.

Mourinho also becomes the first manager to be sacked of any European Super League too, something no one should be proud of.
