Tottenham Hotspur have sacked manager Jose Mourinho.

Spurs are currently seventh in the Premier League and are five points adrift of the Champions League places with just six matches left to play this season.

The north London outfit have won just one of their last five league outings and the heat has been cranked up on Mourinho after a string of turgid displays this season.

And the club have acted by parting company with the Portuguese on Monday morning.

It comes just a day after Spurs were confirmed as one of six Premier League clubs to join the European Super League.

Both announcements leave the futures of Welsh trio Gareth Bale, Joe Rodon and Ben Davies up in the air.

In response to plans for the formation of the Super League, UEFA confirmed the breakaway competition could have serious domestic ramifications for clubs and players.

Part of a statement read: "As previously announced by FIFA and the six confederations, the clubs concerned will be banned from playing in any other competition at domestic, European or world level, and their players could be denied the opportunity to represent their national teams."

Bale's loan with Spurs ends in the summer - although his parent club Real Madrid are among those to join the newly-formed Super League.

Spurs take on Man City in the League Cup final at Wembley on Sunday afternoon just four days after hosting Southampton in the Premier League.
