Mourinho is the favourite to take over with Sky Sports reporting that Spurs could close a deal with the Portuguese, who has been out of work since being sacked by Manchester United 11 months ago, as soon as Wednesday morning.

LONDON - Tottenham Hotspur sacked manager Mauricio Pochettino on Tuesday following a miserable start to the season for last season's Champions League finalists, with Jose Mourinho reportedly poised to replace the Argentine.

During his five full seasons in charge, Tottenham qualified for the Champions League four times, culminating in a dramatic run to the club's first ever European Cup final in June, which they lost 2-0 to Liverpool in Madrid. "We were extremely reluctant to make this change and it is not a decision the board has taken lightly, nor in haste," said Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy.

"I can't thank this man enough," Alli tweeted alongside a picture of Pochettino with the England international.
