Two first half new castle goals from unmissable range, trashed hope at a comeback for 10 man West ham from a Jesse Lingard spot kick in the second half, a relegation assurance cemented by another poor display by worn Sheffield Unitedagainst high flying Wolves, or blown hopes at a top four finish for Spurs all felt like a shadow compared to the jaw dropping announcement by the Tottenham Hotspurs Chairman Daniel Levy, that saw Jose Mourinho and his coaching staff relieved of their coaching duties at the North london side.
In his statement, Daniel Levy said, “The club can today announce that Jose Mourinho and his coaching staff Joao Sacramento, Nuno Santos, Carlos Lalin and Giovanni Cerra have been relieved of their duties.”
“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 I regret that things have not worked out as we both envisaged. He will always be welcome here and we should like to thank him and his coaching staff for his contribution.” he added.
The ‘sugarcoated’ send-off could not mask the top management’s anguish at a spillage of mistakes that blew his career, with the final blow a two goal draw away at 8th placed Everton on Friday last week.
Jose Mourinho leaves Totenham Hotspurs 7th with 50points on the log this season, an episode that has been their worst of recent, with 10 losses, 8 draws and 14 wins in 32 games, bringing his 58 game-in-charge turbulent period at the side to a disappointing end, having returned to management in November 2019 and taking over from current PSG manager Mouricio Pochettino to become the North London’s 121stmanager since Frank Brettel in 1898.
