Interim manager Cristian Stellini has been sacked by Tottenham Hotspur after less than a month in charge.

Ryan Mason, who had a spell in charge when Jose Mourinho was sacked in 2021, takes over.

The decision comes after Spurs were thrashed 6-1 at Newcastle on Sunday, a performance which Spurs chairman Daniel Levy said was “wholly unacceptable”.

Stellini, 48, was appointed on 27 March after Antonio Conte 16-month spell as boss came to an end.

The defeat against Newcastle, where they trailed 5-0 after 21 minutes, was a significant blow to Spurs’ hopes of securing Champions League qualification.

“It was devastating to see,” added Levy.

“We can look at many reasons why it happened and while myself, the board, the coaches and players must all take collective responsibility, ultimately the responsibility is mine.”
