Tottenham players were happy to see manager Antonio Conte leave on Sunday.
The Italian left Spurs on Sunday 'by mutual agreement' and was replaced by his assistant Cristian Stellini, who will take charge of the final 10 games of the season with support from Conte's entire backroom staff - with the exception of his brother Gianluca, who has been relieved of his role as an analyst.
The London Evening Standard says many players at Spurs expected Conte to be sacked and were pleased by his departure.
The players had grown tired with Conte's repetitive training sessions, refusal to set a schedule in advance and habit of deflecting the blame for results onto them in public.
Fabio Paratici, Spurs' managing director, is leading the search for a new coach but is himself facing an uncertain future at the club.
Stellini and coach Ryan Mason have been managing a skeleton squad during the international break and will hold their first full training session on Wednesday, when the internationals return from their respective nations' squads.
Spurs are back in action a week on Monday, against Everton at Goodison Park.
