BETFAIR: BET £5 GET 20*
Portuguese boss Mourinho was relieved of his duties after 17 months in charge.
The 58-year-old helped the London club to a sixth-placed finish after replacing Mauricio Pochettino in November 2019.
But with the club lying in seventh position and out of European competition – chairman Daniel Levy made the decision to send Jose packing.
He wrote in an official statement on Tottenham's website: "Jose is a true professional who showed enormous resilience during the pandemic.
"On a personal level I have enjoyed working with him and regret that things have not worked out as we both had envisaged."
Former Spurs midfielder Ryan Mason has been placed in temporary charge for the remainder of the 2020-21 campaign.

But who will get the job one a permanent basis?
Highly-rated RB Leipzig coach Nagelsmann leads the betting market at 10/3.
The 33-year-old has a growing reputation as one of the most exciting coaches in European football having taken Leipzig to the semi-finals of the Champions League in his first season in charge.
He's joined at the head of the market by Foxes boss Rodgers, who is also available at 10/3.
Rodgers was linked with the Spurs job when Pochettino was dismissed in 2019 but made it clear that he's happy at the King Power Stadium.
Away from the leading pair, there's a big jump back to the next contender in former Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe at 7/1.
Scott Parker and Nuno Espirito Santo are locked together at 8s with Jurgen Klinsmann, who was a 50/1 shot last week, priced at 10/1 to return to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Rafa Benitez has been a free agent since leaving his role in China and is offered at 10/1 while Massimiliano Allegri, Ledley King and Maurizio Sarri all share a price of 14/1.
Inter Milan's Antonio Conte is at 16s with Daniel Farke and Jesse Marsch a fraction behind at 17s.
Graham Potter, Steven Gerrard, Roberto Martinez and Ralph Hasenhuttl are all 20/1 to be appointed Tottenham's next permanent manager.
Betfair Spokesperson, Sam Rosbottom said: "Following the news of Jose Mourinho’s departure, we make Julian Nagelsmann the 7/2 favourite to take over from him and become Tottenham’s next permanent manager.
"We have seen plenty of action on this market already, with Spurs underperforming throughout the campaign and the RB Leipzig coach has been a favourite with the punters for quite some time now."
