BREAKING: Mauricio Pochettino Sacked By Tottenham Hotspur

Mauricio Pochettino

Tottenham Manager Mauricio Pochettino has been sacked by the club following a poor start to the season after five years in charge of the club.

Spurs find themselves down in 14th place in the Premier League which has forced chairman Daniel Levy to make the tough decision just months after the club reached the Champions League final.

Pochettino’s coaching staff Jesus Perez, Miguel D’Agostino and Antoni Jimenez have been relieved of their duties.

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

Pochettino was appointed in May 2014 after impressing at Southampton.

The Argentine guided his side to a Carabao Cup final in his first season at the club.

He has finished third, second, third and fourth in his four Premier League campaigns.

However, Spurs have failed to capitalise after reaching the Champions League final last season and find themselves a massive 20 points behind Liverpool who sit top of the table.

Tottenham return to action against West Ham at 12.30pm on Saturday.
