Tottenham chairman Levy sacked Mourinho amid squad revolt

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy sacked manager Jose Mourinho on Monday amid a players' revolt, it has been claimed.

The Sun reports dismissal came just six days before they face Manchester City in the Carabao Cup Final at Wembley.

Several of players went to see their chairman to complain about the Special One's tactics and methods, which had raised an increasing number of eyebrows in their dressing room in recent weeks.

Senior squad members had bitten their lips after becoming accustomed to the way Mourinho treated and ignored those not in his plans.

But they reacted when Mourinho blamed them for Tottenham's failure to win the Europa League and close in on a top-four finish.

And when first-team regulars who had previously been “Mourinho loyalists" started to voice their concerns, Levy chose to act.
