Can we just have one normal day? Please?

Amid all the chaos created by the Super League plans, Tottenham Hotspur have quietly managed to sack manager Jose Mourinho and hoped nobody noticed.

Well, Twitter definitely noticed.

Chairman Daniel Levy has finally said enough is enough and taken the decision to cut ties with Mourinho 17 months into his reign at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, amid fears that the club's season could spiral out of control.

Spurs are out of the Europa League and five points adrift of the top four in their quest to get back to the Champions League, and with six games to go in the season, Levy wants a fresh pair of eyes.

It's a strange time to make such a big decision. After all, Spurs have the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City on Sunday, but it looks like it'll be good old Ryan Mason who gets the honour of leading the team out at Wembley.

Unfortunately, we don't have the Amazon cameras these days to show us what is going on at Spurs.

On top of the months and months of fan unrest stemming from poor results and dull performances, there has been a lot for Spurs to handle in the past few weeks.

Harry Kane suffered an ankle injury, they were roasted by literal paint, they've been trolled for thinking they deserve to be part of a Super League, and now this. Busy week.

Is it the right move for Spurs? Only time will tell.

With the cup final right around the corner, Levy seemingly feels as though Mourinho is not the man to bring Spurs their first trophy since 2008, but his biggest concern will be in the Premier League, where their European hopes are hanging by a thread.

Spurs must face Southampton, Sheffield United, Leeds United, Wolves, Aston Villa and Leicester City between now and the end of the season, and with a five-point gap already proving problematic, anything less than perfection may not be enough.
