Harry Redknapp has left Tottenham after almost four years in charge.
After finishing fourth last season, Tottenham only missed out Champions League football when Chelsea won the Champions League.
Last week he urged Spurs to resolve his future, insisting that the uncertainty could cause problems in the Tottenham dressing room.
He said: "The simple situation is I've got a year left on my contract. It's up to Tottenham whether they want to extend that contract or not.
"If they don't extend it and I go into my last year, it's not an easy one when players know you've only got a year left.
"It's up to Tottenham. If they think I'm OK and I've done a decent job and deserve an extension, they'll give it to me."
But having been the longest-serving Tottenham manager since Terry Venables, whose reign ended in 1991, he has now left the club.
Redknapp spent most of his playing career with West Ham and Bournemouth and managed both clubs before taking charge of Portsmouth in 2002.
He guided the Fratton Park club into the Premier League within 14 months as First Division champions.
Redknapp left for South Coast rivals Southampton in 2004 but returned to Fratton Park in December 2005.
Then, after dramatically saving Pompey from relegation with a brilliant end-of-season run, Redknapp steered them to a best-ever Premier League finish of ninth in 2006-07.
They improved on that by a place in 2007-08, and won the FA Cup against Cardiff, qualifying for their first journey into Uefa Cup football.
Just months later he replaced Juande Ramos at struggling Tottenham, eventually finishing eighth in the table and qualifying for the Champions League by finishing fourth the following season.
Spurs eventually lost to Real Madrid in the quarter-finalsand finished fifth in the Premier League.
At the turn of the year they were considered potential title challengers but a run of one victory in nine matches contributed to them slipping to fourth and losing out to Chelsea for the final Champions League place.
