Twitter has been set abuzz by the shock announcement by Tottenham FC to let go the Head Coach Mauricio Pochettino after 5 solid years in charge of the premier league club.
Pochettino was appointed in May 2014 and led the club to the champions league final last season where they lost to Liverpool..
Since after the climax of reaching the Champions league final, Spurs have made a dissapointing start to the current season managing only 14th position in the Premier league so far.
Spurs Chairman speaking made known it was not an easy decision to come by. "We were extremely reluctant to make this change,"
Further Speaking, BBC Sports quoted him to have said "it is not a decision the board has taken lightly, nor in haste. Regrettably domestic results at the end of last season and beginning of this season have been extremely dissapointing.
"It falls on the board to make the difficult decisions- this one made more so given the many memorable moments we have had with mauricio and his coaching staff - but we do so in the clubs best interest.
Pochettino at some point was linked to Real Madrid and Manchester united.
However, Spurs have failed to build on last season's exploit this term. As well as their dissapointing league form, they were knocked out of the league cup by league two side Colchester and Hammered 7-2 at home by Bayern Munich In the champions league.
