Martin Jol has been sacked as manager of Spurs after three years in the job.
Jol took charge for the last time for Tottenham’s 2-1 Uefa Cup defeat by Getafe, with the club confirming his departure after the match.
A statement on the club’s official website read: “We can confirm that the board has this evening asked Martin Jol, Club Manager and Chris Hughton, First Team Coach to stand down from their positions with immediate effect.
“We have not taken these decisions lightly or without recognition of the contribution both Martin and Chris have made to the club.”
Jol accepted the decision with grace, thanking the Spurs fans for their support during his time at White Hart Lane.
“I shall never forget the Spurs fans,” Jol said in a statement.
“I can understand the position of the club in light of the results.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here. Tottenham Hotspur is a special club and I want to thank the terrific staff and players. For me, the fans were always amazing with their support, so I would also like to say thank you. I shall never forget them.”
Spurs development coach Clive Allen and Youth team coach Alex Inglethorpe will take charge for Sunday’s game with Blackburn .
“For me, Martin and Chris’s departure is regrettable,” said chairman Daniel Levy.
“Our greatest wish was to see results turn in our favour and for there to be no need for change.”
It was reported that Spurs met Ramos in August with an offer to replace the 51-year-old Jol at White Hart Lane. Such a meeting made Jol’s position almost untenable and after a disappointing start to the current season which has seen the club win just one of their opening ten games, there was an air of inevitability about the Ducthman’s departure.
