Who knows, he's been angling for his own sacking for a while now though, loves a big payoff that man.

although if he has refused to take training is that not gross misconduct

just a random twitter account claiming that, so far as I can see.

Edit - although it would be fantastic if true :D

Maybe Levy is picking a good time to try and Bury bad news about the Super League.

Was on the cards with his recent results, a high maintenance manager who is not as good as he thinks he is and who believes he is more important than the team.

Will no doubt be rocking up somewhere in Europe very soon !!

I would have thought the main task of a manager is to get the players on board not hang them out to dry all the time.

I don't believe it for one moment.

For let's face it, Mourinho sees himself as the world's best manager, so why would he exclude himself from the world's "best" league?

I'd say he's happy to let other people think this (as a face saver), whilst still being able to deny it should a "Super League" job become open to him some day.

Nah. He'll wait for it to be called the 'special' league, then will claim £££££s for the rights to have a league named after him, related to those bloody annoying adverts I keep seeing.

I had "heard" (Unconfirmed) that there was a "break" clause in his contract so Levy could sack him for nothing

The clause was if Tottenham failed to qualify for Europe.

Maybe Jose negotiated a smaller pay off to go now..

Does it really matter ?...Jose is a millionare several times over so I doubt money was that important. Whatever people say on here he has been a fantastic manager having won (according to his CV) 25 major trophies in Spain, France and the UK to name 3, there's not many in football that can say that. Good luck to him, he's better off not answering to Levy.

Maybe he has a tough job with a young squad in transition but i think its yet more proof people shouldnt be given jobs based on their name or what they achieved as a player
Yes. Some big name players in the past failed in management. Going back some years remember the likes of Bobby Moore and Geoff Hurst not cutting it in management along with many others.

I think Wayne’s brain was in his feet and you only have to hear him speak to know that he’s not profile to coach at the highest level with the demands that it brings.
People skills, EQ, Man management and media engagement skills will probably make it impossible for him to manage at the same level he played.

I actually think he comes across very well in post match interviews and is pretty erudite when discussing the horrendous away day refereeing decisions that have gone against the Rams this season.

People look at Lampard's 'success' at Derby in 2018/19 as the benchmark but that was largely built on loan signings and he inherited a poor and demotivated squad when Cocu was sacked. They had an immediate uplift in form but they've returned to what I think is their baseline.

Because of the unique contract he's on it made this move into management an easy one, possibly he should have weighed up the pros and cons before making this decision.

Moving into management is one thing, he has not had a positive impact and not sure relegation is what they need regardless of how much money may be on the way.
Any owners may be impressed with a legendary player as a coach/manager but if they can’t deliver results they don’t last long - Bobby Moore, Bobby Charlton, Tony Adams are part of a long list of people who didn’t transition into successful managers for one reason or another.

Don't disagree with any of that, just pointing out that it was a risky move by both parties to think middle of the season a rookie manager and new coaching team would turn that ship around.

I read somewhere a couple of weeks ago that Spurs were looking at Nuno Espirito Santo for next season. Perhaps he was about to enter contract talks with Wolves and Levy tapped him up first?

I dunno.
But given Spurs' history of nicking Southampton managers I wouldn't be surprised if they went for Ralph Hashenhutl (sp?)

I'm bewildered by the respect that Hasenhuttl seems to get. He seems like a nice guy and I'm sure the fans like his passion, but Southampton are no higher up the league than when he took over, are barely above the relegation zone, and have had a couple of absolute humiliations on his watch.

True.
Charismatic though & seems to have something about him, he'll get a big job at some stage I think

I'm not overly convinced of Levy's managerial decision making, and think he got more credit than he should have for one successful one. He's also hired Tim Sherwood and Villas-Boas, along with Mourinho because he got too excited. I have no idea who they will hire next, I wouldn't be surprised at anyone really...
