Tottenham Hotspur have parted company with head coach Andre-Villas Boas.
The announcement was made after Sunday afternoon's 5-0 Barclays Premier League loss at home to Liverpool.
"The club can announce that agreement has been reached with head coach, Andre Villas-Boas, for the termination of his services," read a statement on the Tottenham Hotspur website. "The decision was by mutual consent and in the interests of all parties.
"We wish Andre well for the future."
Spurs have not yet announced the replacement of the Portuguese tactician, saying: "We shall make a further announcement in due course."
The defeat at White Hart Lane was the Londoners' third defeat in six Barclays Premier League matches, which included a 6-0 reverse at Manchester City on 24 November.
Spurs currently lie in seventh place in the Barclays Premier League table after 16 matches, eight points behind leaders Arsenal, and travel to Southampton on 22 December.
