Spurs part with man­ager

Mercury (Hobart) - - SPORT -

LESS than six months af­ter lead­ing Tot­ten­ham to the Cham­pi­ons League fi­nal, Mauri­cio Po­chet­tino was fired by the English club af­ter its poor start to the Premier League sea­son.

Tot­ten­ham chair­man Daniel Levy said the board was “ex­tremely re­luc­tant” to take the de­ci­sion but was do­ing so “in the club’s best in­ter­ests.” Po­chet­tino leaves af­ter five years in the job, dur­ing which he trans­formed the Lon­don club into a ti­tle con­tender in the Premier League and the Cham­pi­ons League but never man­aged to win a tro­phy.

Tot­ten­ham is cur­rently 14th in the league, hav­ing only won three of 12 games this cam­paign. The team has won just six EPL games since Fe­bru­ary.

FIRED: Mauri­cio Po­chet­tino.
