The Portuguese replaced Mauricio Pochettino as Spurs manager in November 2019 and guided the club to sixth in the Premier League last season
"Jose is a true professional who showed enormous resilience during the pandemic.
"On a personal level I have enjoyed working with him and regret that things have not worked out as we both had envisaged.
"He will always be welcome here and we should like to thank him and his coaching staff for their contribution."This season, Mourinho – who previously managed Manchester United, Chelsea, Real Madrid, Inter Milan and Porto – suffered 10 league defeats in a single campaign for the first time in his managerial career.No Premier League side has lost more points from winning positions this season than Spurs, who have dropped 20.Mourinho's last game in charge was a 2-2 league draw at Everton on Friday.Former Spurs midfielder Ryan Mason, who has been working with the club's academy, will take first-team training on Monday.Spurs had enjoyed a promising start to the current season, including a 6-1 win against Mourinho's former club Manchester United at Old Trafford.A 2-0 home win over north London rivals Arsenal in early December saw them go top of the Premier League, as Mourinho – a three-time Premier League and two-time Champions League winner – became only the second Spurs manager in history to win his first two north London derbies.
They weren't top for long, dropping back to second later that month with defeat by Liverpool.Since then, Spurs have won seven of 19 league games, losing eight of them.In February, they were knocked out of the FA Cup in a 5-4 quarter-final defeat by Everton, marking the first time a Mourinho side had conceded five goals since 2010.They were beaten 2-1 at Arsenal on 14 March and four days later were eliminated from the Europa League, losing 3-2 on aggregate to Dinamo Zagreb having won the first leg 2-0.Two weeks ago, Mourinho – who has earned a reputation as a master tactician and defensive-minded coach and is a former Fifa world coach of the year – refused to accept the blame for Spurs' dropped points."Same coach, different players," he said when it was pointed out to him how good his teams usually are at defending leads..

The Portuguese could target a European job and resume working as a TV pundit until he finds a job that appeals

Prior to his appointment at Spurs only Lyon had shown any interest in appointing him, which perhaps goes to show how he is viewed.
Of course, there will still be many teams who would jump at the opportunity of having such a proven winner at their club, but the Portuguese may have to look lower down the list than he might once have done.Mourinho said at his Tottenham unveiling press conference that he would like to be at Spurs for five years before moving back to Portugal to manage Vitoria Setubal.
Setubal is his hometown club and they could do with him at the helm after a tricky time where they were relegated from Portugal’s Primeira Division last season.
They are on course to bounce back straight away, leading the second tier table, but it might still be too early for a return to the coastal town Mourinho calls home just yet.After his sacking at Manchester United in December 2018, Mourinho filled his time at the weekends by working as a pundit for Sky Sports.
He admitted to enjoying the job and said he made friends while he was there.
He was well received by the viewers and was able to offer an insight that none of their other pundits could.
A return to the studio could definitely be an option if he finds work hard to come by.This looks the least likely option as the Portuguese’s desire to keep working remains strong and he said earlier this season that he has 20 more years left in him.
But after more than two decades in management and approaching 60, Mourinho may contemplate taking a rest and enjoying the riches he has earned back in his homeland.Mourinho stated as recently as September that managing at international level interests him, but not yet.
However, if the right opportunity presents itself, it would be something he might have to consider.
He has mixed feelings about coaching his home country of Portugal, but with their current boss Fernando Santos 66 and in the job for seven years already, that might be a vacancy that comes up soon.
Mourinho said of his ambitions: “Yes I want to do a national team.
I want to do by the end of my career, I want to have that experience of doing a World Cup and Euro, that short competition and that emotion of that short competition would be something I’d like to do.”Get involved with the news in your communityThis website and associated newspapers adhere to the Independent Press Standards Organisation’s Editors’ Code of Practice.
