Daniel Levy said: “Jose and his coaching staff have been with us through some of our most challenging times as a Club. Jose is a true professional who showed enormous resilience during the pandemic.

“On a personal level I have enjoyed working with him and regret that things have not worked out as we both had envisaged. He will always be welcome here and we should like to thank him and his coaching staff for their contribution.”

Tottenham confirmed that the club’s former midfielder Ryan Mason, who is currently head of player development, will take first-team training on Monday.

Both Mason and Chris Powell are expected to be in charge of the team for the upcoming fixtures. Spurs will make a further announcement in due course.

Julian Nagelsmann and Brendan Rodgers are among the leading contenders to succeed Mourinho in the long-term, with a decision over the next manager currently expected at the end of the season.

Mourinho replaced Mauricio Pochettino as Spurs manager in November 2019 and guided the club to sixth in the Premier League last season.
