Women’s Super League: Rehanne Skinner leaves Tottenham after nine consecutive defeats
Ottenham have sacked head coach Rehanne Skinner following Sunday’s loss to Liverpool.
The loss suffered was Spurs’ ninth in a row and they sit just two points above the Women’s Super League relegation zone.
Spurs took an early lead to lose 2-1 at Prenton Park as Rosella Ayane’s goal was canceled out by Emma Koivisto’s deflected strike before Missy Bo Kearns winner left Skinner admitting her side had had to face a “battle” to turn the season around.
That fight will now be in the hands of others after the club moved to end Skinner’s nearly two-and-a-half-year tenure.
Chief executive Andy Rogers said: “Since joining us in 2020, Rehanne has been instrumental in our development in women’s football, both on and off the pitch.
“She carried out her duties with the utmost professionalism and attention to detail, and we would like to thank her for all she has done for us during her tenure.”
Former England assistant manager Skinner took the job in November 2020 and last season guided Tottenham to fifth place in the WSL, their best result to date, as well as the semi-finals of the Continental League Cup .
However, the wheels have come loose since an 8-0 rout of Brighton in late October.
Tottenham have dropped down the table and sit just two points and two places above the relegation zone.
Assistant coach Vicky Jepson will take charge of Wednesday’s home game against relegation rivals Leicester.
