During his period as coach, the last Champions' season performance was highlighted, where Tottenham managed to reach the final as runner-up in the tournament.
In 2018, it was announced that the former Argentine player would have a contract until 2023, a situation that changed a lot with his bad start in the Premier League, because at the time of leaving, the 'Spurs' were in the 14th position of the table, compared to third place in the same league compared to last season.
While there were rummors of a possible exit from the coach, the news of his dismissal surprised more than one. Through its social networks, the English club announced the news: "regrettably domestic results at the end of last season and beginning of this season have been extremely disappointing", as read on the official statement.

Upon his departure, several players like Kane and Dele expressed their astonishment, and in recent statements the Tottenham captain revealed that “I went to see him at his house the next day.

According to, As, Arsenal "has achieved 17 of the 36 possible points." A low yield, taking into account the investment of 150 million euros in players who were signed in the summer market, with the aim of raising the yield.
