- As many are still digesting the news of Josè Mourinho's sacking from Tottenham Hotspur on Monday, social media users are reacting to the news
- While many believe Tottenham Hotspur acted in haste to fire one of the best football managers in England, some believe Josè Mourinho has a job lined up elsewhere
- Moreover, some fans believe the former Tottenham Hotspur coach should just quit the game
Following the news that Tottenham Hotspur have decided against keeping coach Josè Mourinho, the reasons for his sacking have been leaked. Media reports surfaced on Monday morning that the former Chelsea boss was relieved of his duties at White Hart Lane.
The English Premier League giants are said to be unhappy with the Portuguese's offering on the field of play despite reports suggesting he parted ways for other reasons.
Reports suggested Mourinho's dismissal came on the back of theteam’s decision to become one of the founding members of the new European Super League, but it turned out that the club was not happy with the results.
Meanwhile, Briefly News takes a look at the comments from social media users as the outspoken manager leaves the club six days before the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City.
"Josè Mourinho took a stand against the new European Super League and the club owner sacked him on the spot. A huge respect for Josè cause he understands how football should be played."
“But the problem remains the same. Pochettino was sacked and came Mourinho. He continued with the same squad, no new signings now he will get another manager with the very same old squad. Spurs ke Chiefs from London. There are only two players there Kane and Son.”
“Maybe it’s time he calls it quits!! He’s no longer relevant to modern-day football.”
“Maybe for the 5th time, at Chelsea, sacked, Madrid, sacked, United, sacked, Inter, sacked.”
“Firing Pochettino was Spurs' biggest mistake... Bheka manje (Look now), he's in the Champions League semi-finals.”
“Quite premature considering Josè inherited the squad. If given time he probably would've brought in the right players. The current squad is a bit lethargic in comparison to the likes of Chelsea, who've also been rebuilding. Good coaches are hard to come by. Tottenham will struggle.”
In other stories, Briefly News reported that the Lily Whites have sacked Mourinho with just six days to their Carabao Cup final against the Citizens.
It was gathered that Spurs have decided to dispense with Mourinho after just over a season and a half in charge. They are in the seventh position on the Premier League standings and at risk of missing out on a place in the top four.
