BREAKING NEWS: Tottenham Women SACK manager Rehanne Skinner after NINE successive league defeats… with Spurs languishing just two points above bottom of the table Leicester

  • Tottenham have sacked manager Rehanne Skinner after a dismal run of form 
  • They have lost nine games in a row and are two points off last place in the WSL
  • A 2-1 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday was the final straw for Skinner as Spurs boss

Tottenham have sacked women’s manager Rehanne Skinner after a run of nine straight league defeats, Sportsmail can reveal.

Spurs, who play Leicester in a crucial fixture on Wednesday, are just two points above the bottom of the table and are fighting for their top flight survival.

Their latest defeat against Liverpool on Sunday proved to be the final straw, with the club believing a change is necessary to preserve their WSL status. Tottenham have not won a league game since beating Brighton 8-0 in October. 

Assistant Head Coach Vicky Jepson will take charge of the team against Leicester.

Andy Rogers, Managing Director, Tottenham Hotspur Women, said: ‘Since joining us in 2020, Rehanne has played an integral role in our development in the women’s game, both on and off the field. She has carried out her duties with the utmost professionalism and attention to detail, and we should like to thank her for everything she has done for us over the course of her tenure.’

Despite several signings including Bethany England (above) for a domestic record fee, Tottenham are languishing in 10th place in the WSL and are just two points off the bottom

Their loss to Liverpool on Sunday was the final straw for Skinner with Spurs at risk of relegation

Skinner joined the club in November 2020 after Karen Hills and Juan Carlos Amoros were sacked following a run of poor results.

Spurs were able to avoid relegation and enjoyed a successful 2021-2022 campaign, with the club finishing fifth – their highest ever position in the WSL.

Skinner was able to recruit several new players in the summer transfer window while the club broke the domestic record to sign Bethany England from Chelsea in January.

But injuries to other key players and a tough run of fixtures has contributed to their poor run of form.

Spurs have eight games left to secure their WSL survival. Leicester are currently bottom of the table with seven points while Brighton are point ahead on eight and Tottenham have nine.
