- Jose Mourinho was recently sacked at Premier League side Tottenham
- Neil Warnock stated that the Spurs chiefs made great mistake for their decision
- Tottenham are currently occupying seventh position on the Premier League table
Neil Warnock who is the gaffer of Championship club Middlesbrough has slammed those in charge of Premier League side Tottenham for the way they sacked Mourinho as manager.
The sacking of the former Real Madrid handler at Spurs came as a shocking one for many Premier League fans and footballer followers around the world.
According to the report on Mirror UK, Neil Warnock explained that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy fired Jose Mourinho because of the pressure from players.
Ryan Mason has taken over as interim manager and will lead the team for Sunday's Carabao Cup final against Premier League leaders Manchester City.
While reacting, Warnock stated clearly that Spurs chiefs made a wrong decision in firing Jose Mourinho at this time of the Premier League season.
The Portuguese replaced Pochettino at Spurs and the man known as the Special One failed to win any title before he was sacked.
“That was one decision that doesn’t come over right to me. They’ve obviously got someone lined up.
“Once again the hierarchy are listening to the players, which is absolutely rubbish. Players will have got him the sack, and it doesn’t surprise me at all.
“Unfortunately some owners just listen to the players.
“I’ve seen it in the past where disgruntled players deliberately say something because they know they won’t get a look in. It’s the modern world.''
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Jose Mourinho was warned his ship has sailed in the Premier League as he will not be able to secure another job in the English top-flight after being sacked at Tottenham Hotspur.
Mourinho was handed marching orders at Spurs earlier on Monday, April 19, after a dire run of results.
His sacking came barely 72 hours after the north London club's 2-2 draw with Everton that dealt a blow to their Champions League hopes.
The experienced Portuguese manager has now been sacked from each of his last three jobs in the Premier League.
During his tenure at each of the three clubs, he was accused of falling out with players, with his style of management leaving him as an unpopular figure in the dressing room.
