Mauricio Pochettino Sacked By Spurs After Five Years In Charge

Mauricio Pochettino has been sacked by Tottenham Hotspur after five years in charge of the North London club.
Spurs have won just five games so far this season with club chairman Daniel levy saying that a change had to be made in the best interests of the club.

Before then, however, Pochettino was viewed as quite a popular manager. In his five seasons in charge, he led Spurs to four top-four finishes and also guided the club to a Champions League final appearance earlier this year.

In a statement released this evening Levy explained the club’s decision.

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

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

“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.”
