Mauricio Pochettino has been sacked by Tottenham Hotspur after five years in charge of the club.
Pochettino led Spurs to top-four finishes in four of his five seasons in charge, as well as their first Champions League final in the 2018/19 campaign.
However, the club have won just five matches this season, and chairman, Daniel Levy, said a change had to be made in the “club’s best interests”.

Spurs enjoyed a successful campaign in Europe last season, in which they recorded dramatic wins over Manchester City and Ajax in the knockout stages, earning them a place in the final, where they lost 2-0 to Liverpool.
After that defeat, Pochettino warned that Spurs faced a “painful” rebuild, with several senior players reaching the last year of their contracts.
But he has been forced to rely on several players, whose contract will expire at the end of the season, after the club again remained relatively quiet during the summer transfer market.
