Jose Mourinho spotted for first time since Tottenham sacking as ex-manager and Spurs stars leave training ground

JOSE MOURINHO was spotted for the first time since his Tottenham sacking leaving the club's training ground on Monday.

The Special One was given his marching orders by Daniel Levy in a shock announcement this morning, just six days before the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City.

And Mourinho was pictured leaving Spurs' Enfield base in the passenger seat of a car following the stunning news.

The former Chelsea and Manchester United tactician was only appointed by Tottenham in November 2019 following Mauricio Pochettino's exit.

Mourinho managed the capital club for 86 games but struggled to make an impression in the Premier League or Europe.

Spurs are currently seventh in the table, one place lower than where they finished last season.

Tottenham also suffered a humiliating Europa League defeat to Dinamo Zagreb last month.

And Mourinho's negative tactics regularly came under fire from fans and pundits.

SunSport exclusively revealed that the final straw for Spurs chief Levy was a players' revolt, with several dressing room leaders complaining about Mourinho's tactics and the negative atmosphere around the club.
