Nagelsmann key to Spurs decision to sack Mourinho

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy sacked Jose Mourinho over concerns of missing out on RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann, it has been claimed.

The Telegraph says Mourinho was sacked by Tottenham following Levy's decision to accelerate the appointment of a new manager - prompted by the interest in young German coach Julian Nagelsmann from perennial Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.

Levy had made the decision over the weekend following the 2-2 draw with Everton on Friday night that left Spurs with one win in their last five league games and in reaction to the news that Bayern head coach Hansi Flick will not lead the club next season.

Nagelsmann is favourite to succeed Flick at the end of this campaign.
