Mauricio Pochettino has been fired from his role as manager of Tottenham Hotspur after 1440 minutes in charge.

According to sources at Spurs, the board and the Chairman at the club had grown tired of Pochettino's inability to sign world class players and were also extremely concerned about the teams 0% win record under him.

The Chairman of the club released the following statement today.

"In our eyes Mauricio had been given a significant period of time at Tottenham Hotspur to meet our agreed goals of obtaining Champions League football and bringing trophies to the Lane. We understand that letting Pochettino go just before his 5 year contract expires might seem like a waste of money to the club's fans but I can promise them that in comparison to the price we will pay for players to join the club this summer, it will look like a drop in the ocean. We wish Mauricio all the best in the future."

As Spurs fans wait with bated breath to see what manager will come through the seemingly broken turnstile next at White Hart Lane, rumours are rife that a temporary boss will be found after the success of the last temporary coach. Daniel Levy is allegedly looking for a temporary boss who regularly wears a beret or an embarrassing scarf in an attempt to create a new clothing line in the club shop. Roberto Mancini has not been available for comment.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
