Argentine tactician Mauricio Pochettino was sacked as Tottenham Hotspur manager on Tuesday night, paying the price for a sloppy start to the present Premier League campaign.
According to journalist IndyKaila, Mauricio Pochettino will receive a payoff of £12.5m for his dismissal.
Reports claimed that the Argentine manager was asked to resign from his managerial job at Spurs before the decision was taken to sack him.

After 12 league games, Tottenham have just 14 points and are in 14th position on the Premier League log under Mauricio Pochettino.
The North Londoners are a long way off their target of finishing in the top four this season as they are 11 points adrift of Premier League champions Manchester City who are in fourth position.
Mauricio Pochettino has been replaced by Jose Mourinho as the new Tottenham Hotspur after the former Manchester United and Chelsea boss agreed a contract that will run until the summer of 2023.
It was also revealed that Jose Mourinho will earn twice the £7.5m yearly salary received by Pochettino while he was the Tottenham manager.
