Pochettino sacked by Spurs

Tottenham has fired manager Mauricio Pochettino, less than six months after he led the team to the final of the Champions League.

Pochettino leaves after 5½ years in the job, during which he transformed the club into a title contender but never managed to win a trophy.

Despite Spurs reaching their first Champions League final, where they lost to Liverpool, they have been in poor form in the Premier League for most of 2019 and are currently in 14th place.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy says the board was “extremely reluctant to make this change” but that “regrettably domestic results at the end of last season and the beginning of this season have been extremely disappointing.”

Spurs fans took to social media to thank Pochettino for his contribution to the club, many sad at his exit.
