Spurs sack Pochettino

Tottenham Hotspur have sacked boss Mauricio Pochettino following a miserable start to the 2019-20 season.

Despite guiding Tottenham to the Champions League final last season and turning them into strong contenders in the Premier League during his five-year tenure, the 47-year-old was relieved of his duties with the team currently in 14th spot.

“We were extremely reluctant to make this change and it is not a decision the Board has taken lightly, nor in haste,” said Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy.

“Regrettably domestic results at the end of last season and beginning of this season have been extremely disappointing.

“It falls to the Board to make the difficult decisions — this one made more so given the many memorable moments we have had with Mauricio and his coaching staff — but we do so in the club’s best interests.”

“Mauricio and his coaching staff will always be part of our history,” Levy added. “I have the utmost admiration for the manner in which he dealt with the difficult times away from a home ground whilst we built the new stadium and for the warmth and positivity he brought to us.

“I should like to thank him and his coaching staff for all they have contributed. They will always be welcome here.”

Pochettino’s five-year stint at the club made him Tottenham’s longest-serving coach since Keith Burkinshaw who was in charge from 1976-84.
