An update on Tottenham’s hunt for Jose Mourinho’s replacement has emerged on Tuesday.
Jose Mourinho sacked by Tottenham
After news of the European Super League engulfed the footballing world, Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham sacking went somewhat under the radar.
The Portuguese was relieved of his duties on Monday, less than a week before Spurs are set to face Manchester City in the League Cup final.
The sacking means that Spurs now represent the first side with whom Mourinho has failed to win a single trophy.
Ryan Mason has since taken temporary charge of the Lilywhites until the end of the season.
In all likelihood, Spurs will then appoint a more experienced figure ahead of next season, especially now they actually have to earn their European football and not just pay their way into a league.

Brendan Rodgers doesn’t want Tottenham job
So far, a number of high-profile figures have been linked with the job.
Elsewhere, Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has too been tipped as a potential target.
Now, though, Spurs’ hopes of securing the Northern Irishman look to have been dealt a blow.
This comes with Euro Sport reporting on Tuesday that Rodgers is not interested in the Tottenham job.
