• Daniel Levy says decision not ‘taken lightly, nor in haste’
• Tottenham 14th in the Premier League
Mauricio Pochettino has been sacked by Tottenham after a dreadful run of results. The Argentinian manager, who enjoyed such progress since moving to north London in 2014, culminating in reaching last season’s Champions League final, has watched his fortunes slump after a difficult summer.
Pochettino’s team have taken 14 points from 12 matches this season and, in a larger sample size back to February, 25 from 24 games – in other words, relegation form. Pochettino departs along with his assistants Jesús Pérez, Miguel D’Agostino and Toni Jiménez.
