Tottenham Hotspur have announced that they have parted ways with coach Andre Villas-Boas by mutual consent.
Pressure was on the Portuguese following a run of poor results - capped off by the 5-0 thumping handed to them by Liverpool at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
AVB splurged around GBP 100 million on new talent in the summer following the sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid, but despite a positive start, Spurs have slowly started slipping down the table.
A disastrous defeat against the Reds, their worst at home for 16 years and their heaviest ever at home to Liverpool, then saw them drop out of the Champions League places.
Despite AVB declaring that he was not ready to throw in the towel, management at Spurs have decided otherwise after they announced that they had parted ways with the former Chelsea manager.

"We wish Andre well for the future. We shall make a further announcement in due course."
