Tottenham sack manager Andre Villas-Boas
Tottenham have sacked manager Andre Villas-Boas in the wake of Sunday’s 5-0 thrashing by Liverpool.
The defeat was the club’s worst at White Hart Lane in 16 years and left Spurs seventh in the Premier League – eight points behind leaders Arsenal.
Villas-Boas, 36, took over at Tottenham in July 2012.
“The Club can announce that agreement has been reached with Head Coach, Andre Villas-Boas, for the termination of his services. The decision was by mutual consent and in the interests of all parties.”
