Just In: Tottenham Sack Mauricio Pochettino

Tottenham have sacked Argentine manager, Mauricio Pochettino after a poor run of games that has seen them won just five games this season.

Pochettino, a former Espanyol manager has helped Tottenham to one of their most consistent and successful periods in history.

Announcing the dismissal of the former Argentine international, Chairman, Daniel Levy said;

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

“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. 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.

“We have a talented squad. We need to re-energise and look to deliver a positive season for our supporters.”

Levy said Pochettino was removed in the club’s interests. The former Southampton manager has left with his immediate management team.
