After four games in charge and being battered by Newcastle, Tottenham Hotspur has officially fired interim manager Cristian Stellini.

The choice was made the day after Spurs’ 6-1 defeat at Newcastle, a performance that chairman Daniel Levy deemed “wholly unacceptable.”

After Antonio Conte’s 16-month tenure as Spurs manager came to an end, Stellini, 48, was named head coach on March 26. The Italian is going to be succeeded by Ryan Mason, who worked under Stellini and took over when Jose Mourinho was fired in 2021.

The loss against Newcastle on Sunday, where Spurs trailed 5-0 after 21 minutes, dealt serious damage to their chances of qualifying for the Champions League. Owner Daniel Levy said, “It was horrible to witness.

We may examine a variety of causes for what happened, but ultimately, I bear the primary responsibility, along with the board, the coaches, and the players.”

Tottenham is currently sixth in the Premier League standings, six points behind Manchester United in fourth place and Newcastle in third place.

In comparison to Spurs, who play home to Erik ten Hag’s club on Thursday, both teams have played fewer games. Since Stellini was hired, Spurs have won one, drawn one, and lost two games. Stellini served as Conte’s assistant while he was manager.
