For the second time in less than two years, Portuguese coach Andre Villas-Boas has been sacked by a Premier League club.
Following Sunday's 5-0 defeat to Liverpool, AVB was given his marching orders by Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy, who was no longer convinced that the 36-year-old was the man to take Spurs forward.
So, what next for Villas-Boas?
Here are five potential next destinations…
If reports from Spain are to be believed, Barcelona's current coach Tata Martino will leave the Camp Nou at the end of the season.
Villas-Boas would surely love to manage the Catalan giants, as any ambitious football manager would, but would they want him?
Had he achieved more at Chelsea and Tottenham it's possible they would have done, but it's probably safe to rule out this potential move - at least for the time being.
4. West Brom
If AVB wants an instant return to management, he could always apply for the vacant West Brom job.
The Baggies are on the lookout for a talented coach after deciding to part company with Steve Clarke, and they would be foolish to overlook Villas-Boas.
But would he regard the West Brom job as being beneath him? After all, we're talking about a coach who has won major trophies and managed three of Europe's top clubs.
3. AC Milan
It's surely only a matter of time before Villas-Boas is linked with a move to an Italian club.
The 36-year-old has yet to manage in Serie A, but AC Milan could be an ideal next destination for the recently-sacked Spurs boss.
Massimiliano Allegri has been walking a tightrope at the San Siro for an age - and it seems a question of when, rather than if, he'll eventually be sacked by the club's hierarchy.
That process could now speed up with AVB available.
It shouldn't be forgotten how incredibly successful Villas-Boas was during his one and only season with Porto.
He won 49 of his 58 matches - giving him a win percentage of 84% - and he won four trophies, including the Primeira Liga and the Europa League.
If AVB is willing to return to the Estádio do Dragão, it probably wouldn't take long for the Portuguese giants to announce the departure of Paulo Fonseca.
Valencia parted company with Miroslav Dukic earlier this week, leaving an opening for an ambitious coach to come in and work his magic.
Los Che have been through their fair share of coaches over the past 10 years, but a job of this stature would surely still tempt Villas-Boas, particularly after being sacked by two Premier League clubs.
If interested, he will look at what the likes of Rafael Benitez and Unai Emery managed to achieve at the Mestalla - and firmly back himself to do the same.
