first_imgRB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann leads a four-man shortlist said to be drawn up by the north London club.Mourinho and Ancelotti are also on their radar, as is Bournemouth’s Eddie Howe.The latest odds make three-time Premier League and two-time Champions League winner Mourinho the 5/2 favourite.Announcing his decision in a club statement tonight, Levy said: “We were extremely reluctant to make this change and it is not a decision the Board has taken lightly, nor in haste.“Regrettably domestic results at the end of last season and beginning of this season have been extremely disappointing.“It falls to the Board to make the difficult decisions – this one made more so given the many memorable moments we have had with Mauricio and his coaching staff – but we do so in the Club’s best interests.“Mauricio and his coaching staff will always be part of our history. I have the utmost admiration for the manner in which he dealt with the difficult times away from a home ground whilst we built the new stadium and for the warmth and positivity he brought to us.”I should like to thank him and his coaching staff for all they have contributed. They will always be welcome here.“We have a talented squad. We need to re-energise and look to deliver a positive season for our supporters.”latest sports newsSILVA’S GOLDEN GIRLModel Ines Tomaz has been helping Bernardo Silva through quarantineGossipCROWD RETURNFA Cup final ‘may see 20,000 at Wembley in trial allowing some fans at games’CommentPHIL THOMASDiving and whining was never a good look and will seem worse after lockdownExclusive’I’M IN A BAD WAY’Ex-England star Kenny Sansom talks for first time since being attackedExclusiveBOURNE AGAINHowe says Cherries are stronger after lockdown with FIVE fit-again starsExclusiveSWAN THAT GOT AWAYSwansea wanted £3m Davies three years ago but couldn’t get work permitExclusiveMARK MY WORDSJennings reveals life story from adoption to drug abuse and suicide attemptsNEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticNext Spurs manager oddsJose Mourinho 1/3Carlo Ancelotti 17/2Max Allegri 9/1Eddie Howe 16/1Brendan Rodgers 16/1Erik ten Hag 18/1Rafa Benitez 20/1Steven Gerrard 20/1Tottenham would be crazy to sack Pochettino despite form slump, insists ex-boss Harry Redknapp3 TOTTENHAM could pick from a wealth of experienced candidates to replace the axed Mauricio Pochettino.The Argentine was relieved of his duties by kingpin Daniel Levy on Tuesday night – and already the race to appoint a new boss has begun in North London.3 Maauricoo Pochettino has been sacked by Spurs after five years in chargeCredit: AFP or licensors3 Ladbrokes have Jose Mourinho as overwhelming favourite for the jobPochettino was furious that Tottenham failed to make a convincing bid for Philippe Coutinho in the summer and he has watched star playmaker Christian Eriksen go off the boil amid the Dane’s contract wrangle.Even though Spurs are stuck in 14th place, there is a sense that the likes of Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Manchester United are still all keen on the Argentine.Ole Gunnar Solskjaer himself is under intense pressure at Old Trafford while Bayern have already sacked the struggling Niko Kovac.last_img
