Tottenham Sacks Andre Villas-Boas

286

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,” said a Spurs statement.

“The decision was by mutual consent and in the interests of all parties.”

Villas-Boas had come under increasing pressure in recent weeks as his side struggled to keep pace with the top four in the league.

His side lost 6-0 to Manchester City on 24 November and, despite a draw against Manchester United and wins at Fulham and Sunderland, the defeat by Liverpool proved the final straw for the Spurs hierarchy.
