Following the sacking of Jose Mourinho at Tottenham Hotspur, football fans on social media have advised the Portuguese tactician to retire from coaching and management.
Tottenham are seventh in the Premier League table they are winless in their last three league outings and they were knocked out of the Uefa Europa league a month ago after a second leg comeback win by Dinamo Zagreb.
But sources say the decision to relieve the 58-year-old of his duties was not related to his objection to the European Super League.
Recall that on Sunday night, six Premier League clubs including Spurs alongside three La Liga sides and three Serie A clubs launched a breakaway league.
Mourinho’s exit has been a talking point on social media, with football enthusiasts thinking it will benefit the former Inter Milan coach with a severance package ready for him, some suggested he is losing his touch in management while others blamed Spurs because of the newly-formed Super League.
Mourinho sacked again 🙆♂️

Jose Mourinho sacked by Tottenham Hotspur because he supposedly stood up for Culture and the Beautiful Game.
Daniel Levy does not have patience.

When Mourinho was at United, I never supported him even for a second. Football has grown pass him and he has refused to adjust. He still thinks he is the best #Mourinho

Mourinho steady getting paid… Lol.
Honestly doubt big clubs will be willing to go near that man. Heck, I wouldn’t want my club to touch him, not even with a stick.

Jose Mourinho played Daniel Levy.
He knew he will get the sack at the end of the season.
He capitalised on the European Super League news to force the hands of Daniel Levy. pic.twitter.com/kNCWum7Kre

Maybe Spurs were using Mourinho to lobby to get into the Super League. Their PowerPoint presentation likely contains a “Big stadium, Big coach” slide

Mourinho doesn’t care about SACK LETTER
He is sure of getting a better job because of his Skillset in the coaching career
He doesn’t care about other peoples’ judgment.
He has been sacked by over four different clubs now yet he is making his money.
Do it. Don’t be afraid
