FOOTBALL: Tottenham sacks manager Andre Villas-Boas
Tottenham have sacked manager Andre Villas-Boas in the wake of yesterday’s 5-0 Premier League thrashing by Liverpool.
The loss was the club's worst at White Hart Lane in 16 years and left them seventh in the table – eight points behind leaders Arsenal.
Former Chelsea boss Villas-Boas, 36, took over at Tottenham in July 2012.
Villas-Boas was dismissed by Chelsea in March 2012 after just over eight months in charge at Stamford Bridge, and he was hoping to rebuild his reputation at Tottenham.
He won 53.7 per cent of his league games in charge, which is the highest of any Spurs manager since the Premier League era began in 1992.
But Villas-Boas had come under increasing pressure in recent weeks as his side struggled to keep pace with the top four in the league.
