Tottenham Manager Andre Villas-Boas Sacked

Tottenham have confirmed the sacking of head coach Andre Villas-Boas after less than 18 months in charge. The Premier League club announced the news on their official website, a day after their 5-0 home defeat to Liverpool. That loss appears to have been the final straw for the White Hart Lane board, with the club saying in a brief statement: "The club can announce that agreement has been reached with Head Coach, Andre Villas-Boas, for the termination of his services. "The decision was by mutual consent and in the interests of all parties."
