Tottenham Hotspur have sacked Jose Mourinho just before the club’s League Cup final with rumours claiming the manager objected to the European Super League that Spurs have somehow managed to get themselves invited to.

Tottenham then made an official announcement:

While it’s not clear yet what has actually prompted his sacking, triggering yet another massive payday for Mourinho that Spurs would not have been able to afford without the European Super League cash, it is well known that the Portuguese manager had no interest in a European Super League:

Given Spurs desire to win a trophy, it would seem an incredibly strange move to sack him just days before a final when, as much as we all dislike the man, he was their best chance of helping them pick up a bit of silverware. Are you going to argue Spurs think Ryan Mason is the man to do that?

While it had been reported that Bayern Munich were on the verge of joining the new European Super League, they may not be, but nobody seems to know what’s going on:

At the weekend, the Bayern head coach, Hansi Flick, told the club he would not remain in charge beyond the end of the season and that he wished to terminate his contract.

As for Arsenal, they have no plans to make any managerial changes at the club.
