Goal Singapore readers predicted AVB sacking

The Portuguese boss has been given the boot after a 5-0 humiliation at the hands of Liverpool at White Hart Lane on Sunday evening
The tribe has spoken.

Tottenham has officially sacked Andre Villas-Boas a day after a 5-0 trashing by Liverpool at White Hart Lane.

The defeat leaves Spurs seventh in the Premier League table, eight points behind pacesetters Arsenal, and comes less than a month after a 6-0 humbling of Manchester City, a result which initially put the Portuguese under pressure.

Villas-Boas was adamant after the Liverpool match that he can still turn things around, insisting that he is not a quitter.

The 36-year-old added that there was still time for the team to get back on track, but it seems that club chairman Daniel Levy disagrees.

"The club can announce that agreement has been reached with Head Coach, Andre Villas-Boas, for the termination of his services," a statement read.

"The decision was by mutual consent and in the interests of all parties."

Even before the news was made official, Goal Singapore readers had already predicted that Villas-Boas’ time was up. 46.6% voted that he should be fired for not translating the money the club’s spent on players into results, while 31.4% felt that he needed more time for the team to gel and play as a unit. 22% of voters thought that he should have at least been given till the end of the season to see if the team can finish in a Champions League qualifying spot before his fate was to be decided.
