After 17 months in charge of Tottenham Hotspur, Jose Mourinho is out of a job. On Monday morning, it was announced that Spurs, who sit in seventh place of the English Premier League table, have officialled sacked The Special One.

The season started off hot for Tottenham FC, but the team has sputtered ever since. Fans had been calling for the club to pull the plug on the Mourinho experiment, and they finally got their wish.

After beating Manchester United 6-1 early on in the campaign, fans were dreaming of fighting for a league title. However, Spurs has sputtered since. They're on the outside looking in for the Top 4. Plus, let's not forget about the Round of 16 exit from the Europa League.

The writing was on the wall for Mourinho. He arrived to North London with massive expectations, but simply wasn't able to live up to the hype.
