Jose Mourinho has been sacked as manager of English football club Tottenham Hotspur.
The former Chelsea, Manchester United and Real Madrid boss was appointed as Spurs manager in November 2019, taking over from Mauricio Pochettino.
His contract was due to run until the end of the 2022-23 season.

The London club is among 12 that shocked the football world on Monday by announcing the formation of a breakaway European Super League.
The Portuguese, who led both Porto and Inter Milan to Champions League crowns and won the Premier League in two stints with
Chelsea, paid the price for a disappointing campaign.
A 2-2 draw on Friday against Everton left Tottenham, Champions League finalists in 2019, in seventh place in the Premier League and unlikely to reach the top four.
Tottenham face a League Cup final against Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday.
They also suffered an embarrassing Europa League last-16 exit against Dinamo Zagreb, losing the away leg 3-0 having won the first leg 2-0.
“The club can today announce that Jose Mourinho and his coaching staff Joao Sacramento, Nuno Santos, Carlos Lalin and Giovanni Cerra
have been relieved of their duties,” said Spurs.
“Ryan Mason will take first team training today and a further update will follow in due course.”
