Milan and Real Madrid.
His 17 months in north London, however, have been anticlimatic. The club finished sixth last season, and sits one place below in the current standings after just one win in their last five Premier Games. In that time, Mourinho described what he described as one of the most humiliating nights of his career: Dinamo suffered an exit from the Europa League at the hands of Zagreb.
Tottenham players became increasingly restless during his reign, constantly trying to blame him for the Spurs’ struggle, rather than accepting at least a part of the responsibility for himself. Last week, when asked why his team lacked the defensive tenacity of some of their championship-winning sides, he replied: “same coach, different players.”
Levy decided on Friday night – after a 2–2 draw with Everton – to take part with Mourinho, appointing two of his coaching staff Ryan Mason and Chris Powell, to take over the club’s responsibility for the rest of the season.
Their first week would end with the League Cup final on Sunday, the first home trophy to be held in England against Manchester City – exactly the occasion on which Mourinho was hired to reach and win. He, now, will not be given a chance.
