Jose Mourinho was reportedly summoned for talks on Monday morning as Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy made the decision to sack the Portuguese manager.
Spurs confirmed the sacking of Mourinho around 11am on Monday, less than a week before they take on Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final.
The writing had appeared on the wall for Mourinho in recent months with Spurs putting in increasingly poor performances since defeat to Liverpool at the end of January.
They drew 2-2 with Everton on Friday night with the Telegraph reporting that Mourinho was summoned for talks on Monday.
And news soon broke that the former Manchester United and Chelsea boss was being shown the door by Levy.
Reports elsewhere claim Tottenham chiefs came to their decision following the draw at Goodison Park.
Though Levy insists he has enjoyed working with Mourinho, who was appointed at the end of 2019.
Levy said: "Jose 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."
Tottenham announced their intention to be one of 12 founding members of the European Super League.
Though reports suggest Mourinho’s sacking is based purely on recent results with Tottenham four points off fourth placed Chelsea.
