Tottenham Hotspurs Football club have a few hours ago announcéd the sacking of their manager Jose Mourinho after only 17 months on the job. This comes after a run of poor results that have seen the North London side win one of the last 5 league games. The lackluster exit from the Europa League against Dinamo ZAGREB of Croatia did not help his case.

One has the feeling this action may have been influenced by the negative style of soccer Spurs have been exhibiting recently more than the results itself. The timing of the decision by Daniel Levy has raised eyebrows ,with Tottenham facing English Champions in waiting Manchester City this week in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley on Sunday. We think Jose is done as a top level manager. His failure change his archaic methods to modern standards proved to be his undoing.
