He would never have imagined that the four-back defense line he converted in 15 months would ruin his coaching career.
Tottenham’s acting manager, Christian Spellini, has been sacked.
On the 25th (hereinafter Korean time), British media such as the Daily Mail, The Sun, and the Mirror all reported that “Tottenham has sacked acting manager Spellini after the defeat against Newcastle.”
Tottenham suffered a humiliating defeat 1-6 in an away match in the 32nd round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-2023 season against Newcastle held at St. James Park, England on the 23rd.
It is the first time since the 2015-2016 season that Tottenham lost both matches to Newcastle in one season. This humiliating defeat made Tottenham uneasy about maintaining 5th place, where the right to advance to the Europa League depended. With a record of 16 wins, 5 draws and 11 losses (53 points), they are only 2 points behind Aston Villa in 6th place. In particular, there is a 6-point difference between Newcastle in 3rd place and Manchester United in 4th place (59 points above). Newcastle and Manchester United played one and two games less than Tottenham, respectively.
Then, Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy said on the 24th, “The match against Newcastle is completely unacceptable. It was hard to watch. We can look at the reasons for the disastrous defeat against Newcastle in many ways. I, the board, coaches and players are all collectively responsible. I have to take it. Ultimately, that responsibility is mine,” he said, trying to calm the angry fans.
In the end, Chairman Levy had no choice but to face an unprecedented situation in which even the acting manager was hardened following manager Antonio. The reason why Levy sacked Spellini as acting manager is because he is a remnant of former manager Conte. Tottenham judged that the team had hardly changed with Spellini and former coach Conte connected, and concerns that the team could take a completely new approach with the end of the season just around the corner.
According to British media, Tottenham supports coach Ryan Mason to lead the team until the end of the season. This isn’t the first time Mason has been at the helm of Tottenham on an interim basis. Mason, who is only 32 years old, took the temporary helm in 2021 when manager Jose Mourinho was sacked.
Levy said: “Coach Mason will take over as manager. Mason knows the club and the players well. We will provide more information to Mason at the appropriate time.” 안전놀이터
While Tottenham also became a ‘shipwreck’, President Levy met with the players and asked for ‘the beauty of the end of the season’ for the rest of the season. “We all know that we have to provide a club administration that will win incredible support from the players,” Levy said.
