See Why Tottenham Sacked Mauricio Pochettino

Mauricio Pochettino has been relieved of his duty as Tottenham coach, it has been confirmed.

The Argentine manager had come under pressure amid his side’s underwhelming start to the season, as they sit 14th in the Premier League table and 20 points behind leaders Liverpool.

The Chairman Daniel Levy has confirmed that the club have decided to make a change, as Pochettino and his coaching staff, Jesus Perez, Miguel D’Agostino and Antoni Jimenez, have been let go.

“We were extremely reluctant to make this change and it is not a decision the board has taken lightly, nor in haste,” he told the club’s website..

“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.”
